USU breaks kissing world record

Students at Utah State University broke the world record for the “longest kissing chain” in the late evening of Friday, September 23rd. The previous record of 303 participants was set at a school in India earlier this year. The Aggies set the new world record with 1,450 participants. Kissing has played an important role in student traditions at USU. The longstanding “True Aggie” tradition, a title given to those receiving a kiss on the “A” under a full moon at midnight by somebody who is already a “True Aggie” or on Homecoming, is a right of passage for many students. At one time USU held the record for “most couples kissing at the same place at the same time.”
