More than 550 students broke a record in silence over the weekend.
The Inter-Residence Council hosted a Silent Disco Saturday night at Talley Student Center, featuring music played on headphones rather than out loud. The event was the largest event of its kind in the U.S. to date, with more than 550 students in attendance.
Dakota Bentz, a freshman in biomedical engineering, said she decided to attend Silent Disco because it was free and sounded exciting.
“I’m having a lot of fun so far,” Bentz said at the event. “Everyone is dancing and the DJs music is good.”
