The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Tuesdays” (formerly Trivia Wednesdays), which will be published in every Tuesday edition throughout the summer. The first person to respond to with the correct answer will win Canisius “swag.” Additionally, once a month on Tuesdays, 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 Tuesday of each week along with the correct trivia answer.

This week’s special giveaway question is:
