Humans vs. Zombies Breaks Records in Student Participation

A zombie apocalypse fell over Claremont from Oct. 7 to Oct. 11, as humans in pink bandanas ran screaming from zombies lurking in the shadows. Played 24 hours a day on all five campuses, Humans vs. Zombies (HvZ) is a bi-annual game in which a group designated as zombies attempts to tag players designated as humans, who carry foam dart blasters or socks for protection. Tagged students immediately become zombies, who in turn tag more humans. With over 600 players involved, HvZ is one of the Claremont Colleges’ largest substance-free activities. A number of athletes participate in the game, including members of the CMS football team (from left to right: Patrick Dixon CM ’17, Ryan Farney CM ’16, Anthony Tung CM ’18, Juan Perez CM ’17, Gator Adams CM ’17, Austin Crist CM ’16). “It’s a great experience,” said Adams, who is a linebacker. “You get to meet a lot of new people you would never have met otherwise. It’s very competitive and there’s a lot of camaraderie.”
