Who knew downing a six-pound hamburger in just under three hours could be someone’s claim to fame? Kate Stelnick, freshman early education major, certainly never dreamed it would be hers.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years, you know that “Halo” is much more than what’s hanging from the corner of Sugar Ray’s four-post bed. “Halo,” Microsoft’s most successful video game available for X-Box, is a first-person-shooter with incredible graphics, fast-paced action, a movie-quality storyline and a multi-player mode that has redefined what it means to have a multi-player mode in a game.
