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 of each week along with the correct trivia answer. This week’s giveaway question is:

(a) Seoul, South Korea

(b) Queensland, Australia

(c) Cairo, Egypt

Congratulations to Kristina Laun, administrative associate for the ITS Department, who won last week’s Trivia Wednesday contest. The question was:

a. Felix Chamberland MS ’19

b. Ryan Schmelzer ’18

Canisius in the News

Cycling Magazine (Canada) references the latest research by Karl Kozlowski, PhD, associate professor in the Department of Kinesiology, in an article titled “You Probably Aren’t Eating Enough Gels During Rides,” which appears in the January issue. Kozlowski’s research examined the effects of energy gel ingestion on blood glucose, lactate and performance measures during prolonged cycling. His findings were published in The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and can be read by clicking here.
