The Volunteers Did It! UT Achieves World Record

With more than 3,100 students, about 700 faculty, staff, and retirees, about 400 alumni, and one bluetick coonhound, UT this morning set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD title for the largest human letter. Volunteers stood together in Neyland Stadium to create a Power T that spanned 190 feet by 190 feet. NBC’s Today show viewers witnessed the feat, which was part of Rokerthon 3, weatherman Al Roker’s week-long trek to five universities to break world records.
