Starting college is nerve-racking enough for many young adults.

Those first of day class jitters, combined with a jarring introduction from the ‘so-called’ professor makes for a shaky start.

According to UPROXX,
in the video above, a prank shows the pretend professor at the University of Rochester, scare a classroom full of incoming freshmen with threats of failure and confiscated electronic devices.

The prank was acted out by comedy group The Chamber Boys on the first day of school last year.

The clip was such a hit, the school eventually released a video about the real Professor— Ben Hafensteiner — who agreed to the prank.
