Friday night trivia event challenges students


Some students like to relax and do nothing when the weekend hits.

Others prefer to work their brains even more by answering trivia questions.

On Friday afternoon, Shippensburg students gathered in teams of two to three and tested their knowledge at the “BRAINSTORM! Honor Student Organization’s Trivia Bowl.”

The event took place from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Ceddia Union Building’s multi-purpose room.
It was a chance for students to just sit back, relax and ponder some challenging trivia questions on topics that ranged from scientific all the way to pop culture.

Admission for each person was $2, and all proceeds went to the Wolf Sanctuary in Lititz, Pa.
There were 100 questions asked over a period of 10 rounds, and the team with the most points at the end of the tournament won.

Junior mathematics major Grant Innesst was in charge of the event.

“I had done something like this and thought this would be a good idea,” he said.

Students enjoyed partaking in the event as well. Freshman Aaron Jeffrys thought it was a “good break for Friday,” Freshman biology major Tara Kennedy thought the game was for a “great cause.”
