The undead apocalypse is upon us this week at ABAC. So far, hundreds of students have signed for what is known as Humans Vs. Zombies or ‘Zombie Week.’ Humans Vs. Zombies was started last year by the Campus Activities Board. “We had seen it done at other schools and decided to give it a shot,” said Allison Gord, member of CAB. Last year this event got well over 300 students involved.
“September is get active month so this event ties in with that,” said Gord. “It’s been called the greatest game of campus wide tag.” She advised participants to just “keep running and throw socks.”
The event is campus wide, however, some areas are off limits. The library, academic buildings, indoor athletic facilities, health centers, dorm rooms, and Donaldson Dining Hall are all “safe zones”. Humans must wear an armband around their shoulder to signify that they are participants in the game. Zombie players must wear a headband to signify that they are also participants.
Other caveats are than human players must not leave campus for more than 24 hours or they will be removed from the game. Humans can throw socks at zombie players to stun them for 15 minutes. A zombie must catch at least one human player every 48 hours, or he or she is out of the game. For more information please contact the Campus Activities Board.
