It’s Trivia Wednesday!

The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Wednesdays” which will be published throughout the school year in every Wednesday edition. The first person to respond to with the correct answer will win Canisius “swag.” Additionally, once a month on Wednesdays, there will be a special giveaway in which the winner will receive some of the newly-designed Canisius Sesquicentennial gear.

Winners will be announced the following Wednesday each week along with the correct trivia answer.

This week’s giveaway question is:

Which TWO current professors have been teaching at Canisius the longest and have the same start date at the college?

(a) Bruce Dierenfield, PhD – History (b) George Palumbo, PhD – Economics and Finance (c) Richard Shick, PhD – Economics and Finance (d) Nancy Rosenbloom, PhD – History

Congratulations to Barbara Irwin, PhD, professor of communication studies, who was last week’s Trivia Wednesday winner! See below for last week’s question and answer.

Canisius welcomed its first full-service, national franchise to campus in 2009, when it opened Tim Hortons. Can you guess how many cups of coffee it serves up, on average, each year? 80,260
