Trivia quizzes were held from Fall 2011 -Fall 2013.  In Spring 2014, they were replaced by an activity block.

Our trivia quiz was implemented one fateful day in the Fall semester of 2011, when the leaves had yet to turn and the days were still warm. Students tread hither and thither with nary a coat to be seen, lest for mere fashion. It was in this humble environs that Michaelangelo Roman, once vice president of this great organization, did say to his wife of three years...

Trivia is conducted in the middle of meetings, between our first and second shows. The quiz consists of three different categories that will change each meeting, each containing three questions ranging in difficulty. All attendees are permitted to participate. The category and difficulty will be chosen by consensus - that is, what suggestion is loudest. The question will be read, and whoever shouts out the answer first will be awarded an amount of points according to the difficulty of the question. If your answer is incorrect it will be ignored, and various hints will be provided until the club cedes the question.

The kicker is this: only three questions can be asked each meeting, one from each category.

Questions will be worth 1, 3, or 5 points. These points will be marked down on a roster and tallied at the end of the semester. The winner will be awarded a prize from their favorite series, and bragging rights. Once trivia has been conducted, the questions that were asked will be posted on the front page with their answers.

For a sample, here are some past categories, perhaps to be seen again:
