    Spooling Adventures

    We acquired a lot of small spools in the courtyard, which led to the creation of large towers of spools in the courtyard. This was the creation of the initial stack of spools:       It didn’t fall! Through the next day, people would knock the stack of spools down and rebuild them. Soon…

    Space Mining the Big I

    Every other year all the houses band together to put on Big Interhouse. Each north house (and Avery) pairs with a south house to make a party in the courtyard of the south house, and all these parties are held simultaneously in one night. This year, Blacker paired with Lloyd to have Space Mining the…

  • Gon(e)do(o)r


    In Blacker’s alley called Tunnel, there’s a room named Gondor. It’s usually a frosh double, and this year lots of puns were made about the name. Recently, a number of frosh decided that Gondor’s door should be gone, so they made it happen.   Gondor, sans door.   After removing it from its hinges, they…

    Oh Christmas Tree

      In December, Blacker Hovse gets a Christmas tree for the lounge. It’s hung upside down and decorated with a wide variety of items (usually found lying around in the lounge).

    What you missed at PFW

    What you missed at PFW was, of course, Blacker Deconstruction. At Deconstruction, all gather in the courtyard, Feast on Liquid Nitrogen ice cream,    And destroy pianos. There are two pianos, one for the Moles, and one for the Prefrosh. Deconstruction is a contest between the two groups to see who can destroy their piano…

  • Frosh Project

    Frosh Project

    Every year when there’s not a big Interhovse, the frosh get together and build something, with help and advice from the upperclassmen. The idea behind this is so that the frosh can learn how to use power tools and construct things, and also so that they can have fun and bond as a class. Last…
