Getting shot by Nerf guns can be fun, as anyone who participated in the Oct. 21 zombie tag event organized by Student Programs can attest to.
With more than 100 participants, the event was deemed a success. Students still continue to talk about the event and some are considering starting a permanent Zombie Tag Club on campus. Zombie tag, or as it also is known, humans vs. zombies is a popular game that has been spreading from college to college since its origination at Goucher College in Maryland in 2005.
The zombies are designated by their bandanas and headbands, while the “survivors” of this zombie-apocalypse scenario try to stay alive by stunning the zombies by shooting Nerf guns or throwing rolled up socks.
If the humans survive an allotted amount of time, they win. If all the humans are tagged then the zombie team is declared the winner.
Although there were a few hiccups in the event, it was nothing that could stop the fun once it got started. Student Programs continued to allow people to register for the game up until 11 a.m. on the day of the event due to the overwhelming number of applicants.
