Alumni Trivia: October 2019

As we head into Fall Break, students are hard at work cramming for exams. Do you remember which university we faced in the G.E. College quiz Bowl in this month of 1969? Let us know!

The answer to our last question (“What Campus Difference Initiatives-sponsored event prompted students to take action on diversity issues and to work to ‘Find Common Ground in the year ahead?”) is “Diversity Jam 1997.” Thanks to everyone who shared their memories with us!
