They were standing, sitting, reading, sunning, studying, hugging, talking and listening to music, but the one thing all 16 Misericordia University students had in common was keeping at least one hand on the Cougar van, a requirement in the “Touch the Van” contest held for the first time by the Student Government Association (SGA).

The contest was one of a number of events hosted by the SGA as part of World Record-themed Springfest Weekend, designed to add some fun to the last week of classes at the campus in Dallas, Pa. After 26 hours, dual winners were declared. Jaimie Washofer of Waldwick, N.J., and Angelo Prince of Hainesport, N.J., each earned an iPad Mini for their efforts.
