PSA Hosts Team Trivia Tournament
BY SAMANTHA ELLIOTT, Editor-in-Chief
On Tuesday, April 10, the Political Science Association hosted their first ever PSA Team Trivia Tournament.
The event, which took place in Kochoff B, welcomed other campus organizations as well as any group of students looking to have a good time. Questions for the event were provided by Great Lakes Trivia and the team based atmosphere allowed all members to participate.
Registered tables required a minimum of three participants and a maximum of eight. Registration was free for those who wished to participate.
Lyceum, the literary and fine arts journal on campus, came out to enjoy the event and left with a gift basket after winning first place.
Although some at the table agreed that there could have been a wider variety of topics covered in the questions, everyone had a great time.
“It was a cool way to get to know people in your org and get to know people outside of your meetings,” senior Eman Elshaikh said.
Many student organizations were represented and teams had a variety of reasons for wanting to participate.
The Pre-Professional Health Society and the League of Extraordinary Poets combined to form a table. Their reason for joining was simple, according to junior Amal Algahmi. “We love Jeopardy.”
Amanda Lewandowski and Dominica Convertino sat on a team with a group of students belonging to no particular organization.
Convertino was impressed with the wide range of students represented in the room; a mixture of ages, majors, and interests was present.
“We wanted to embrace the diversity of our campus,” Convertino said of her team wanting to join the event.
Lewandowski was impressed with the turnout of the event.
“Normally people have class for a set amount of time,” Lewandowski said. “I think it was a great turnout.”
Questions asked to the teams ranged from “What is the first space past ‘Go’ on a Monopoly board?” to the final round question, putting five Taco Bell menu items into caloric order.
Great Lakes Trivia hosts trivia in several locations including Bailey’s Pub and Grill on Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.
