Some students at the University of Minnesota are taking a stand for slacklines.
Minnesota Daily reports slackliners stretch a rope or cable between two trees then try to balance on it.
The school is trying to shut the recreation down.
“It’s just an activity. It’s harmless,” Kevin O’Brien, the VP of a slackliners club said. “We’re not hurting anyone.”
