Get thinking caps on for the Trivia Bowl


Published (Volume 76, No. 8)


It’s Trivia Bowl time again at UTM.

So, to get you in the right mindset, here are a few general trivia questions: Who was Ronald Reagan’s secretary who was shot during an assassination attempt on Reagan? What is the oldest university in the United States? Who won the first NFL Super Bowl?

(The answers: James Brady, Harvard University, and the Green Bay Packers.)

Perhaps these questions were no match for your superior intellect. If so, my friend, you should put that noggin to use. Sign up to participate in the Trivia Bowl.

The Eleventh Annual Trivia Bowl, sponsored by the History Club and the University Scholars Organization, will be held at 6 p.m. Oct. 20-21 in the Humanities Auditorium. This year’s Trivia Bowl will be in the Jeopardy format and will feature questions from history, literature, science, current events, sports and entertainment.

Teams of four, with an optional fifth player as an alternate, must sign up in Dr. Dan McDonough’s office (322 Humanities) by noon Tuesday, Oct. 14, and pay the $25 entry fee.

Teams entering this year’s competition face the daunting task of dethroning last year’s winner, Vaughn’s Kids. Vaughn’s Kids is a group of Honors Seminar students so named in honor of former political science professor Dr. Vaughn May.
