Trivia Night – A New Tradition

Posted on: May 19, 2014

By Dr. Al Rives

A new tradition is emerging in the department – a visit by many graduating seniors and faculty to Foothills Brewery for Trivia Night near the end of the Spring semester.  Knowledge of trivial matters is not a prerequisite, but a cool chemistry-sounding team name is.  This has happened irregularly over the past 5 or 6 years, usually gaining some momentum in the Chem Analysis class most of the seniors take in the Spring.  This year the turnout was overwhelming (both for the organizers and the folks at Foothills), so it looks like the tradition is officially established.
