Grinnell College Alumni Virtual Trivia Tournament

Can you name the top layer of the Earth's atmosphere? Are you a font of knowledge about movies from the 80's? Maybe you are the person everyone asks about famous pieces of art?

If so, gather your Grinnellian friends together to play in in our virtual trivia tournament! This year all alumni and current students are invited to participate.

Hosted by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations, the tournament will occur Feb. 21–28, 2023. Each team will compete in a preliminary round and the top three teams from each preliminary night will move on to compete in the Championship Round on Feb. 28 to determine the winning trivia team!

Each night will be comprised of three unique rounds of themed trivia with 10 questions in each round.

Register online by noon CT Thursday, February 16 to secure your spot. You can register as a team of 4-6 people, or register as an individual and you will be connected with other Grinnellians to form a team. All preliminary round options will be capped at 25 teams, so register early!

How many people can be on a team?

Groups who wish to register as a team must have 4-6 people, no more, no less.

If you don’t have at least 4 team members, we encourage you to register separately and email Jennie Jackson at jacksoje@grinnell.edu to say that you would like to be together. However, you will have other Grinnellians added to your group that night to form a complete team.

Can I play on more than one team?

You may only play on one trivia team.

What if I don’t have a team?

We will assign you to a randomly assigned team of alumni and students. This is a great way to make new Grinnellian friends! We will keep registering couples together when assembling teams.

Can alumni and students be on a team together?
