The Biggest C: Cal students set Guinness world record for largest human letter at Memorial Stadium

Go Bears!

Cal Athletics

The California Golden Bears are back in session, not just on the football field, but in the classroom. Fall semester began this week at UC Berkeley.

It seems more and more like the university is doing a good job of promoting school spirit early on. Take a look at what a bunch of our newest Bears did at California Memorial Stadium tonight.

It’s a Big C! One could say, the Biggest C!

7,196 Cal students got together and formed the largest human letter in recorded world history. The Guinness Book of World Records were on hand to officially give the credit to our new group of UC Berkeley students.

It’s really cool to see the university put time and effort into these sort of activities to hopefully create school spirit and camaraderie. For much of our lifetime, Cal has been sorely lacking in this department. Here’s hoping efforts like these are a step in the right direction.

The old record holders were from the University of Tennessee.

Ten years, Cal beat Tennessee.

Shall we end the season now?
