The Frosh Arrive

On Saturday, October 1st, at 5:00 PM, Blacker Hovse welcomed its 26 incoming frosh.

Upperclassmen put on their Saturday best to make a good impression.

And according to tradition, the frosh gathered to adorn the President with the mud from Baxter pond.

Ponding is really a hovse effort.

The frosh gave the President a much gentler toss than previous classes. Talia claim’s she’s “glad” she only got lightly tossed and “so happy” she’s not covered entirely in mud, but we suspect she’s just going easy on the new moles and trying not to insult their ponding techniques.

I have no pictures of Nikita wearing a shirt.

It looks like she won’t have to pretend for much longer, as the frosh are already pondering how best they could recapture her.

After showering the soap and mud off, the hovse drove to the Original Tommy’s to introduce the frosh to Tommy’s Chili. Then, clean and well-fed on chili, chili fries, chili burgers, and chili-tamale-extra-chili-hold-the-tamales, they headed back to Munth for a cult classic, The Big Lebowski. Love it, hate it, whatever – either way, it really ties the class together.
