The University of Alberta once again is the proud holder of the world record for the largest dodgeball game. 2,012 students, faculty and staff divided into two teams, the Green and the Gold. Pure mayhem might be a fair way to describe what followed, as the two teams launched volley after volley at each other. In the end the Gold team won but more importantly the campus community showed that together they can accomplish great things – and have enormous fun doing so.
The University of Alberta held the record last year as well until students at the University of California (Irvine) trumped the 1,198 students who participated at the Butterdome last year. The new record of 2,012 will be a much tougher one to beat.
Congratulations to the University of Alberta and to the Students’ Union for putting together another fantastic event that showcases the enthusiasm and spirit present at Alberta’s universities.
