Nationwide Trivia

Saturday, January 26, 2019
4:30 - 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time

1:30 - 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time

Please join Carleton alumni, parents, and friends in your area for live Nationwide Trivia! For those of you who are new to this fun and challenging event, here's how it works: Carls across the country compete by answering trivia questions via satellite network. Carls from participating clubs (listed below) will face off to play Countdown Trivia at the same time, and scores are tabulated after each round to declare an eventual winner!

Official competition starts at 2 p.m. Pacific, 3 p.m. Mountain, 4 p.m. Central, and 5 p.m. Eastern. Join us half an hour early to get organized and take part in an optional warm-up round of trivia. Each club will report their scores throughout the competition so you will know where your club ranks. We'll have two divisions for the competition again this year: Division I will be made up of our larger clubs, which usually have multiple teams playing at their location and are able to pick the highest score among them. Division III will be our smaller clubs with only one or two teams competing. At the end of the day we will declare a winner in each division. In addition, we'll send out the full list of final scores because we know many of you will still want to see where your club ranked among all of the others. The Chicago Club took home the top prize in both 2017 & 2018 in Division I. For Division III, the Colorado Club won in 2017 and the Milwaukee Club won in 2018. Who will it be this year?

RSVPs are appreciated HERE by Thursday, January 24. If you have any questions, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 800-729-2586 or alumni-office@carleton.edu or contact the local team host.
