3,648-student pillow fight needed to break world record

Next month students can fight for a world record – with their pillows.

The University Activities Organization announced yesterday it will co-sponsor a pillow fight on April 23 at 4 p.m. in the University’s intramural fields.

That number the student organization has plastered all over campus – 3,648 – indicates the number of students necessary to break a Guinness record, UAO co-director Kajavius Wilson said.

The group, which is working with Sigma Phi Epsilon and Game Game Night to sponsor the event, decided to hold the event just before exam week to help students destress, Wilson said.

“We’re looking for something to relieve the campus and try to bring an environment that’s like campus fest that gets the students together no matter who it is and just have a good time,” he said.
