The Fact Challenge: A General Information Quiz Bee
As part of the celebration of the College Week 2016, the Student Council for SY 2015-2016 sponsored the first General Information Quiz Bee for College students. The quiz bee aimed to engage Scholasticans in a friendly competition that will showcase their knowledge of general facts which highlights their liberal arts academic preparation.
Held last January 14, 2016, the Social Hall witnessed the challenging exchange of answers among students from first to fourth year across all schools and departments in the College Unit. A total of ten participating groups with three members per team took their shot at answering the questions prepared by the Student Council which were inexcusably difficult yet prompted the contestants to focus their energies at the task at hand.
Aside from showcasing the versatility of students when it comes to their knowledge of general information and trivia, the activity likewise served as venue for positive social interaction among students.
Winners of the Quiz Bee for 2nd Place were the team consisting of Jiane Nicole Mallari, Yara Ahmed Lotfy El Arini and Viel Jeanine Sia. The 1st Runner Up winners were Jann Nicolle Arabelo, Mary Ruth Jopillo, Marianne Rose Antonio.
Emerging as the Champion of the Quiz Bee was the team consisting of Carla Mei De Guzman, Ramela Acoba and Richien Sigrid Esguerra.
With the success of the said activity, the Student Council hopes to pave the way to similar activities where students can showcase their versatility and smarts across disciplines and areas of interests, which in itself is a mark of a true liberally educated Scholastican.
