Jan. 24, 2012. Despite the frigid temperature, more than 5,000 Appalachian students, faculty, staff, administrators and community members filled the Holmes Center last night and another 1,562 watched the live stream on computers and mobile devices.

This number easily eclipsed the attendance record for the MLK Commemoration set last January when over 1,800 filled the Farthing Auditorium for Angela Davis.
