Students Break Box Fort World Record

Students Break Box Fort World Record
Nathalie R. Miraval, Andrew J. Petschek, and Xi Yu

Kirkland House temporarily turned into a fortress with the help of Laura E. D'Asaro '13 and other House residents. You may remember D'Asaro from two years ago, when D’Asaro broke the world record for crawling the fastest mile in 22 minutes and four seconds. Seeing box after box piling up in recycling bins during move-in as a sophomore, D'Asaro was inspired to build a giant box fort. Only 284 boxes were needed to break the record, but the final fortress consisted of exactly double that amount.
