It’s Trivia Tuesday

The campus community is invited to watch The Dome for special “Trivia Tuesdays,” 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:

Approximately 2,600 Canisius students participate in global service initiatives throughout the year. Can you guess how many hours of service they rack up in total:

(a) 33,000 hours

(b) 45,000 hours

(c) 62, 500 hours

(d) 26,000 hours

Congratulations to Suli Calianno, Canisius Fund coordinator, who won last week’s Trivia Tuesday contest. We’ll have some Canisius swag waiting for her when the campus returns to normal operations.

Last week’s Trivia Tuesday question was:

Canisius played its first televised college football game in Western New York in 1948 against what school?

(a) Xavier University

(b) College of the Holy Cross

(d) John Carroll University

The correct answer was: (c) St. Francis University, PA. (Canisius 61, St. Francis 0)
