Roughly 3,900 boxes were stacked together in the shape of UT mascot Bevo to demonstrate the University’s commitment to recycling on America Recycles Day.

Students in the Campus Environmental Center began building the fort early Friday morning with the help of 800 student volunteers.

The box fort was designed to break Duke University’s record of 3,500 boxes, which was achieved over the summer.
