Saint Mary’s Biology Club to host trivia night

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Biology Club is hosting a trivia night Thursday to test the community’s knowledge on a variety of topics, from the history of the College to general science questions, in the Science Hall at 7 p.m.The event is open to participation from all majors as an effort to act as a unifying event for students, Biology Club vice president and senior Nicole Nemeth said via email. “We all hope that students will come and enjoy the fellowship of other Belles while having fun and showing off their trivia skills,” Nemeth said. Biology Club member and senior Allison Sweeney said she is most looking forward to seeing the evening’s turnout because of the club’s efforts to make the event feel welcoming to all. “I am most excited to see how many people come to the event and how everyone reacts to the questions that we put so much time into creating,” Sweeney said via email. “We wanted to make it fun for everyone of all majors.” Nemeth, along with the rest of the Biology Club executive board, came up with questions that they felt would both present a challenge to students but also be knowledge accessible to the entire community, not just those studying the sciences, she said. “We all enjoyed creating categories and questions,” Nemeth said. “Some of the questions are challenging and fun and we enjoyed putting them together.”Nemeth said the club sees the event as an opportunity to market themselves to all students, inviting the involvement of students from a variety of backgrounds and a variety of majors. The Biology Club has hosted multiple events this year to draw in students that come from non-science backgrounds. “This event will benefit the [Biology] Club by promoting our club to all students as an organization that is fun and inclusive,” Nemeth said. “We try to create events such as this that are not only science-based so as to reach out to everyone and truly show the campus what our club is about.”Nemeth said the club hopes to continue the trend of including all students. She also said the club plans to offer events with similar goals in the future. “We hope that in the future, the Biology Club will be able to continue to host similar events,” Nemeth said. “As a club, we try to plan a social event once a month, open to anyone that wishes to attend, so in the future other similar events would definitely be a possibility.”Sweeney added that the winner of the trivia night will receive a free graduate school exam preparation course, aiding them in their future application process. “We are also giving away a free Kaplan course at the trivia night, so any [Saint Mary’s] student will be able to win a free course to help them prepare for graduate school applications,” Sweeney said.
