You shared your feedback after the first trivia night and we listened. The event kicks off later, and we are using a new trivia platform with live leader board updates to enhance the
friendly and competitive spirit.
The Libraries’ Development and Alumni Relations team welcomes its 2019 intern Nick Karafilis (’19 H&HD, A&A) as the evening’s co-host. Nick is also the curator of the Penn State-themed questions across multiple categories.
The Jeopardy-style trivia night will feature questions from Penn State’s founding years as a Farmer’s High School to present-day. Participants will answer two rounds of questions in this webinar-style Zoom event. Winners and prizes will be announced at the end.
We hope you can join us for a fun night on the 19th! No studying required.
All our best to you, the Libraries Trivia Night team #psulibstrivia
