"We started Dodging for Dreams last year to break the record for the world’s largest dodgeball game with 1,700 players," said Michael Welch, Student Association president. "We fell short by about 1,000 people, but we still had fun.

"This year we aren’t trying to break any world records, mostly because a new one was set at 4,000 participants in September by the students of Brigham Young University and Utah State.

"The only record we care about beating is last year's. The more people we can get on the field the better... 500? Not bad. 1,000? A lot of fun. 4,000? Hey, you never know!"

Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company.
