Global Quiz Night

Global Quiz Night is a campuswide event in which teams of students compete against one another in a trivia bowl. Teams compete for over a $1,600 worth of prizes and the glory of being crowned Global Quiz Night Grand Champion.

The 2016 Global Quiz Night is hosted by the Honors Program and the GATE Program. Past sponsors of this event include Don Juan's Mexican Restaurant, Republic Ice House, Scooter's Coffee and Steak n' Shake.

Mark your calendars for the Fifth Annual Global Quiz Night: Oct. 27 in the UC Ballroom.

Check-in begins at 5:30 p.m. and the event starts at 6 p.m.


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 emails 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.

Team Registration

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.

Individual Registration

Walk-ins on the evening of the event are also welcome to participate, but space may be limited.

All students that participate in the event will receive an official Global Quiz Night swag item. There is no cost associated with participating in 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 between Oct. 24-27.

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.
