Michael Rihani includes on CrunchBase this bit of history for Virginia Tech fans of terms like Hokie:

"Unique to Virginia Tech is the word ‘coofer’ that was coined in the early 1940s to refer to tests or homework completed in an earlier course that is available to students taking the course later, and used as a means of studying or preparing. The term originated at Bluefield College, a former extension branch of VPI, and is likely derived from the word ‘coffer’ (synonym for a strongbox). A student from Bluefield College transferred to the Virginia Tech – Blacksburg campus and first introduced the term. It is often used as a verb in such constructions as ‘to coofer a problem,’ also sometimes spelled ‘koofer.’”

Koofers.com was featured as one of nine LaunchBox award-winning start-ups in this 8/5/08 post on TechCrunch.
