The age of the white felt dink is unknown.
The red "bucket-style" hat with the brim up in the back, was used as a dink for a Chi Omega chapter in Ohio in the 1950s

My alma mater (U of Montevallo, formerly Alabama College) used to have a number of hazing traditions, both before and after coeducation in 1956. Senior March (see link) hung on until the early '90s:

Expected? No. Inadvertently have because it was given to them at say, new student orientation? Sure. Freebie stuff like day planners, sunglasses, those drawstring bookbags, etc.

I'd imagine many first-year students would be so "too cool for school" to wear a beanie, and some would cry hazing (bc OMG my life and livelihood is threatened by wearing a hat!)

I want to know when "DON'T CARRY A PURSE OR EVERYONE WILL KNOW YOU'RE A FRESHMAN" died. My 17 years older than me cousin told me that, and she was right.

I know this is a pretty old thread, but ... my initial thought was also "DINK" = "Double Income No Kids". I remember the beanies from "Animal House" but I've never heard the term "dink" in this context before.

At my mother's alma mater, St Andrews, there was the tradition of the raisin string. First year students, known as bejants or bejantines, were paired with a senior man or woman who would help get them acclimated to campus life. On Raisin Monday (in early November) the bejant/ine had to present his/her senior person with a thank-you letter, which had to be written in Latin, Greek, or Hebrew. The senior person would then present the bejant/ine with a raisin string - basically a string with little trinkets like silver charms - which the bejant/ine would attach to his/her academic robe. (All students were required to wear academic robes to class.) Until you got your raisin string, older students could haze you, which typically involved reciting verses from "Gaudeamus Igitur". It seems the tradition has morphed a bit since my mother's day, but the basic principles are the same.
