RMU Competes at Quiz Bowl

The Robert Morris University Honors Program was honored this spring semester with our first chance to compete in a regional Quiz Bowl that contested for nationals. Six RMU students traveled to Youngstown State University to compete in 9 rounds, plus 2 playoff rounds, against other colleges and universities. Other schools such as Edinboro, Pitt, and Carnegie Mellon University were represented there as well. The timed rounds used a buzzer system in which we were tested on academic and trivia questions. Although going to nationals is not in our futures, we were praised for our enthusiasm, commitment and drive for it being our first time competing (we were the only school there competing for the first time.) We had the honor of meeting many other students who had worked very hard to reach their standings. It was a joyous experience and we are looking forward to setting up competitions on campus to compete again in the future.
