The term "Squirrel" has become a title of honor, indicating that the current title holder is carrying on the SQUIRREL tradition of chasing the squirrels on Duke West Campus, which are unusually calm and easier to approach than other squirrels. The first "Squirrel" was Torin Rukab, in 2009, who (due to the overwhelming excitement of his first year of TIP) developed the habit of yelling "SQUIRREL!!!!" when he saw a nearby squirrel, and ran very quickly after it to try to catch it.
