The journalism department has launched a department-wide trivia competition. Every week an email will be sent to majors/minors with a link to surveymonkey.com where students can answer 10 questions about world and local news, along with questions from periodicals available in the Journalism Reading Room.
The first week’s winner was Jenny Goldade, a journalism major with a writing and editing emphasis and a creative writing minor. She answered all 10 questions correctly.
“I try to stay updated on what is going on locally and around the world,” Goldade said.
Goldade said she gets a majority of her news from postings on Twitter.
Questions for the trivia game range from news on campus to news throughout the world. As journalism students, it’s important to stay in touch with what’s happening in the world.
“I like the new trivia game,” Goldade said. “It is a good way to test my knowledge on current events and know what is happening nationally and worldwide.”
Answers to the questions and a list of students’ cumulative points are posted every Thursday in the reading room. Points will be calculated and the weekly winner will get a prize. Weekly points will accumulate throughout the semester and the student with the most points at the end of the semester will win a grand prize.
This week’s quiz is at this link and can be completed through Thursday morning.
