University Union plans to host another ‘Quiz Bowl’

Planning for another Quiz Bowl event for this semester, and looking for students to participate, the University Union is advertising for teams of 2-8 players willing to test their knowledge of history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, sports, popular culture and more. (Yes, it’ll feature a  “buzzer system” that lets players interrupt the reading of a question when they know the answer. Those “tossup” questions are answered individually, but doing so earns one’s team a chance at more difficult, multipart “bonus” questions.) Any faculty and staff members who think they know students that would shine in this setting should email organizer Alex Schwartz at He can provide more information and will help recruit and sign up players.
