The College of Business and Delta Sigma Pi are ready for the 2015 Trivia Bowl on Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 3-5 p.m. at Rassman room 104.

“The purpose behind the Trivia Bowl is for students to have a good time,” coordinator of the event and professor in the Department of Management and Marketing Gayle Randall said. “It’s an opportunity to participate so when students graduate they can leave with something to remember.”

This is the first year the event will be held and there are already many teams that have joined the Trivia Bowl. Randall said they are expecting about 50-60 students to show up.

Delta Sigma Pi, the business fraternity at ASU, will compete in the event just as other school organizations may as well.

“I am looking forward to the connection of faculty and students,” Delta Sigma Pi President Kimberly Presley said. “It is always a pleasure to see students interact with their professors and build connections that could possibly help them in the future.”

This is a great opportunity for students to compete, socialize and get to know their professors.

“Most students are afraid to interact with professors in a casual way,” Presley said. “What they don’t realize is how much their professors can help them during and outside of their degree.”

Many local companies and restaurants have donated gift cards and products for the event, Randall said.

The competition will involve trivia questions from a variety of subjects, such as geography history, business, Disney questions and most importantly no math questions, Randall said.

Along with the competition, there will be snacks served at the event.

“Hopefully the event goes well and students enjoy it,” Randall said. “If things go right, we can have it again next year.”

ASU students can sign up for the Trivia Bowl by signing into Ramport. Students can sign up for free with their team or sign up individually and later get placed with a team. It is recommended for at least one member of each to be a business major. Each team will also be required to have one faculty member from ASU on its roster.

Students interested should sign up as soon as possible. Freshman students are encouraged to come so they have an opportunity to meet their classmates outside of class and have fun while winning prizes.
