KENT, Ohio — Hundreds of students -- and anyone else who was in the right place at the right time -- had some childhood fun with an old-fashioned snowball fight at Kent State last night.

Around 300 to 500 people gathered near Taylor Hall for a snowball fight organized in a GroupMe chat.

Video footage from KentWired, a student-run news website, showed a large group formed between 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., with activities wrapping up around 11:20 p.m. after police arrived.
