Spooky Trivia Night!

This Fall semester the Graduate School plans on hosting a Halloween themed Trivia Night on October 20th from 6 pm - 8 pm. We want our graduate students, staff, and faculty to be able to have fun and relax at this social event as they continue into the second half of their semester. 


  • Teams must consist of 4-6 people. You will come up with a unique team name to distinguish yourselves from the other teams. Graduate students, staff, and faculty are all welcome to register. You are also welcome to invite friends or loved ones from outside the university to join your team. 
  • We will have 3 rounds of trivia, each round will include 10 questions from a Halloween related theme. Each team will receive a sheet of paper to record their answers at the beginning of each round. Questions will be read aloud, but will be available to read on a slideshow in the front of the room. At the end of each round, 1 person from each team will turn in their answer sheet to the MCs. We will record the scores of each team and announce the top 3 teams with the highest scores in between rounds. 
  • Use of cell phones, tablets, and laptops is prohibited while your team still has their answer sheet during each round. Once someone from your team has turned in your answer sheet, you are welcome to use your phone. If there is an emergency and you need to use your phone, we ask that you step out of the room if possible. If someone on your team is caught cheating, your team will not be eligible to win any of the prizes, including best costume. 


Since this is a spooky, Halloween themed trivia night, we encourage participants to wear costumes. Wearing costumes will not be mandatory, but the person with the best costume will win a special prize. If your team wears matching/themed costumes, we may award bonus points. 


Prizes will be awarded to the teams the come in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. We will also reward a special prize for the individual with the best costume. We will share more information about prizes as we get closer to the event. 


Please click the button below to register your team. Only one person from each team needs to register, they will have the opportunity to put down their team members names. 

Space at the venue is limited, so if you are interested in coming we recommend registering sooner rather than later. We will send you an email once we have confirmed your registration. If all the spaces are already filled by the time you register, we will let you know via email.
