During the eight-week program, Navy Seaman Recruit Walls completed a variety of training which included classroom study and practical instruction on naval customs, first aid, firefighting, water safety and survival, and shipboard and aircraft safety. An emphasis was also placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp is “Battle Stations.” This exercise gives recruits the skills and confidence they need to succeed in the fleet. “Battle Stations” is designed to galvanize the basic warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedication, teamwork and endurance in each recruit through the practical application of basic Navy skills and the core values of honor, courage and commitment. Its distinctly ”Navy” flavor was designed to take into account what it means to be a sailor.

The official record states the Department of Campus Involvement at SCSU is “officially amazing” having achieved the record with 296 participants. Previously, no record existed for the most people howling. A minimum of 250 participants was required for consideration.
The 296 students and community members gathered on Atwood Mall for the Husky Howl on April 26 to set the record. Guinness approved the record Aug. 19 after examining videos, photos and witness statements for verification.
“As our students know, there’s no pride like St. Cloud State pride anywhere else in the world,” said Lindsey Rogers, marketing coordinator for the Department of Campus Involvement. “And we have the record to prove it.”
This is the university’s first Guinness World Record, however previous record-setting attempts have taken place. According to Guinness World Records, 60,000 applications for record attempts are received each year, but only a few are approved and even fewer are successful.
The department will receive its official Guinness World Records certificate within the next couple of weeks. It is not yet known if the record will be included in the print edition of the Guinness World Records book.
