Humans vs. Zombies at TTU

By Ann Wyatt Little - bio | email

Lubbock, TX (KCBD) - It is a game of survival that has gone viral across the country, and more than 500 students at Texas Tech University are taking part in a glorified game of tag.

A group of students would say there is something super-natural lurking on campus. "Humans are trying to survive and the zombies are trying to take over," said organizer Sam Svetlik who used Facebook to organize the game.

"We had to have a meeting with the grounds use committee and they signed a permit saying we could play all week," added Stevlik who also emailed TTU police chief and other administrators.

The group is divided into humans and zombies. Humans can use nerf guns and sock balls to eliminate zombies. If a zombie gets hit, he or she goes essentially to time out.

Students say they don't miss class and the game makes it even more fun to navigate from building to building.

"I've met a lot of new people this week," said freshman Catherine Fielder.

"It gives students a chance to make friends and find a little niche in college," said Svetlik.

The group will hold another game next semester. They will play through the weekend.

The game started in Maryland and is played at more than 600 campuses.
