  • Jeopardy online quiz – Many of you know that President Doti and I are big fans of the Jeopardy game show, and we strongly encourage students to try out for the Jeopardy College Championship. As part of our campaign, each year we host our own Chapman Jeopardy tournament with cash prizes of $1,000 and $500 for the top finishers; furthermore, the top finishers then compete with President Doti and me for additional prizes. Finally, you can earn a $10,000 grant if you make it on TV for the actual Jeopardy College Championship. The first step in qualifying for the College Championship is to take an online test.  Check UPB’s Facebook page at starting Friday for the link to take the online quiz.
