On December 5th, 2018, the mole frosh conducted the most ambitious crossover prank in Blacker History.
Blacker’s fourth annual 24-hour Blackerathon kicked off on January 6, 2017 at 7:00 PM. Here are some of the projects:
Tool Room clean-up

On November 30, 2016, Blacker Frosh pulled off a prank during their last Ph1A lecture of the year. With the theme “Fantastic Beasts”, things got somewhat out of hand when someone left their magical briefcase open, releasing a hoard of friendly creatures on the Ph1A lecture hall.
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.
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.
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.
The frosh class pranked the last physics 1a lecture by opening some portals in the middle of class.
Once the portals were activated, a series of frosh went in and out the various portals while the “Portal” theme played.
The timing was perfect, and at the end of the prank the class was lectured a bit on some of the physics in the game.
Rules dinner – the dinner where we explain the dinner rules to the frosh by breaking them all.
No sitting down to dinner before the curtains open.
No headgear. Or selfies.
No impersonating the president.
I’m not going to spoil all the rules (that’s for you to figure out for yourself), but I hope that this displays that Blacker dinner is serious business.
