Global Quiz Night 2015

Global Quiz Night is a campuswide event in which teams of students compete again one another in a trivia bowl. Teams compete for over a $1,000 worth of prizes and the glory of being crowned Global Quiz Night Grand Champion.

The fourth annual Global Quiz Night will take place on Oct. 29th in the UC Ballroom. Check-in begins at 5:30 PM and the event starts at 6:00 PM.


Students can register for Global Quiz Night as a team or as an individual. Teams that register will need to designate one individual as the team captain. The team captain will receive all official e-mails relating to Global Quiz Night and be responsible for forwarding emails to their teammates. All announcements will also be posted on the Global Quiz Night Facebook page.

If you would like to participate in Global Quiz Night and do not have a team, you can register as an individual. Prior to the start of the event, we will place you on a team.

Walk-ins on the evening of the event are also welcome to participate.

Online registration for Global Quiz Night will be available on September 4th, 2015.  

There is no registration cost to participate in the event.


You can download a copy of the rules for the event here. All teams will be provided with two copies of the rules at the night of the event.

The 2015 version of the rules will be posted on September 4th, 2015.

Team Costume Contest

All teams are eligible to compete in the costume contest the night of the event. In order to qualify for the contest, a team must have at least five members in costume. Teams will be evaluated collectively as opposed to individually. Costumes will evaluated in the following categories: originality, quality, creativity, and cohesiveness. The winners will receive special prize baskets at the conclusion of the event.

Tiebreaker Questions (in partnership with the University Archives)

If you really want to get an edge on the competition this year, you can do research on the tiebreak questions. The University Archives is furnishing the tiebreak questions for this year and has material available for students who want to study up in the event that they land in the tiebreaker round. You can find out more about the University Archives and Special Collections here or visit them in Library 107.
