During Delaware State University’s annual Fall Open House, Family, Youth & Community Day on Oct. 19 the institution will strive to make its mark in the Guinness World Records.

The university will engage administrators, faculty, staff, students and visiting youths and their families in an attempt to break Guinness World Records titles for “Most people waving foam fingers simultaneously” and “Most people buzzing simultaneously.”

The official attempt to break the records will take place on the Pedestrian Mall area outside of the Martin Luther King Jr. Student Center. The university will begin gathering the participants in that area at 10 a.m. with the attempt at the Guinness record to take place at 10:30 a.m.

The attempt to break into the record book will be just one of a number of events to show prospective students and their families the all-encompassing Hornet Spirit as well as all that DSU has to offer as a prominent state institution of higher education and the only historically black university in Delaware.

Attendees will be able to learn about DSU’s admission process, financial aid possibilities and explore the academic offerings, student organizations and study-abroad opportunities. The university’s deans, department chairpersons and faculty members will be hand to share information about specific academic programs. The day will culminate with the 2 p.m. Merrimack University vs. Del State football game at Alumni Stadium.
