As if you need further proof that Wash U. graduates really can do anything they set their minds to, consider this:

On Sunday the 2010 senior class accomplished its goal of breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest human massage chain. A total of 710 students -- and some faculty -- showed up inside the school's Field House to participate in a three-minute, group shoulder massage.

The previous record was set in Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 2001 involving 617 people.

As senior class president Fernando Cutz told the Wash U. paper Student Life: "It will be very cool to pick up the Guinness Book of World Records and find our name in there as the Class of 2010."
