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:

Men’s basketball made its first post-season appearance in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in what year?

(a) 1961 (b) 1970 (c) 1944 (d) 1945

Congratulations to Matt Gorczyca, assistant director for the Canisius Fund, who was last week’s Trivia Wednesday winner! See below for last week’s question and answer.
