"Ghetto" : I was introduced to this by my roommate from Omaha, NE. It is used in a derogatory fashion to indicate that something is of a low quality or not quite what it was pitched to be. Example: This printer is SO ghetto. It keeps eating my paper. ...OR... This dorm is ghetto. Everyone smokes and comes in drunk on Tuesday nights.

"Gank": to take, probably illegally or against established rules. So you can "gank" some paper for your printer from a friend (not illegal)...or you can "gank" an orange from one of the Mizzou dining halls (illegal, according to Campus Dining Services).

Hope this helped you!
