Faculty vs. Student Trivia Night is a trivia contest in which students teams compete against teams of professors. Each game has multiple rounds, and each round has a different topic or type of challenge (like identifying songs from sound clips or answering different types of questions from subjects, such as history or science).
Every round, teams are given a set of 10 questions; they discuss the answer in their group before turning in their answer sheet to be scored. The last round is like the final "Jeopardy!" round, with teams bidding points that they earn or lose depending on if they answer correctly. The team with the most points wins.
The program seeks to support the university’s mission to foster community among students and faculty while giving librarians a chance to build relationships with faculty and students in a casual setting.
