Beloit College students break Ultimate Frisbee record

Attending college can be financially beneficial, as the U.S. Department of Labor projects that in the coming decade, 90 percent of new high-growth, high-wage jobs will require some postsecondary education. Students who wish to enroll at a university that boasts a fun and exciting student life may want to consider Beloit College in Wisconsin.

The school has a frisbee golf course on its campus grounds, as well as the Beloit Ultimate Frisbee Family (BUFF) and intramural teams during each spring semester.

In 2006, a group of 30 Beloit students broke the record for the longest continual game of Ultimate Frisbee, according to Sports Illustrated. The group planned the event in secret for more than two months, before setting the new record of 72 hours.

The news source reports that the previous record had been set by a club team in Leeds, England, which played for 70 hours.

Alex Tillett-Saks, one of the organizers, told the media outlet that students don't make it through Beloit without ever having played frisbee. He added that the president of the college wrote the team a letter, and a professor sent him an e-mail telling him he was surprised because he didn't think they would do it.
