Students work to assemble a giant puzzle in the Campus Center Lobby on Tuesday Sept. 6. 2016. The event, which was part of the Meadville Big Zipper Project has a chance at breaking the Guinness World Record for the longest zipper or representation of a zipper. The zipper is meant to pay tribute to Meadville’s history as the birthplace of buttonless pants.
