University students celebrated the first snow day of the year with an annual tradition – a snowball fight on McKeldin Mall, with a goal of breaking a world record of 5,834 attendants.

Using the hashtag, #SnohForLoh, students spread the word, resulting in more than 3,000 joining the event.

Although the event did not break any records, hundreds of students battled for victory in a chaotic series of snowball shenanigans.
