What special presentation did the Office of Campus Life have for County College of Morris students on Tuesday, Feb. 12? You guessed it.
The February Fun Trivia Game Show kicked off in the Student Center Davidson Rooms at 12:30 p.m., where students gathered to participate in or watch the show.
“I think it’s here to foster a good student environment,” said Mustafah Williams, 20, a communications major from East Orange. “It’s my understanding that it’s just a little something to de-stress us so we’re not burdened by our assignments.”
Before the games began, Sandy Froojian, 18, a nursing major from Rockaway, expressed her interest in participating. “I hope the questions are all over the place, so I know different categories,” she said. “I was in a trivia show like this once when I was 7, and it was a lot of fun.”
The event featured a competition between three participants per round and was played similar to Jeopardy with various categories. Questions ranged from topics such as black history and pop culture, to Valentine’s Day and hodgepodge. Some rounds provided difficult questions about U.S. presidencies, while others demanded to know national flowers.
Winners walked away with prizes equivalent to the difficulty of the round they played in. Prizes ranged from buckets of candy and popcorn, to a new Bluetooth set, a desktop printer and a DVD player. Audience members, as well as participants, remained involved in the fun for over an hour.
“I felt like I was about to fall off the platform, since I was on the edge,” said Kayla McDonald, 18, a social science and humanities major from Flanders. “But it was a lot of fun.”
