Members of Purdue's largest-ever freshman class successfully set the Guinness World Record of "Most People Blowing Train Whistles Simultaneously" on Wednesday in Mackey Arena, along with the help of BGR student staff, volunteers from the community and some of Purdue's athletes.

Before setting the world record, students got pumped up at the Boiler Up Rally, where they met Purdue's volleyball, cross country, soccer and track and field teams; watched performances by the cheerleaders while the band performed Purdue's iconic music; and participated in a number of challenges involving Purdue's fall sports.
