MUNCIE, Ind.--- Gamma Theta Upsilon hosted a 'Geo-Jeopardy' fundraiser for their trip to the American Geography Association Conference hosted in Detroit, Michigan.
“We go to Detroit to learn about Geography in general, learn more about the organization as well, or meet a lot of experts in the field,” Co-President of GTU, Ethan Smart said.
The event was open to anyone, including students outside of the geography and meteorology major. The event was hosted on Nov. 2, from 5-6:30 p.m. in the Cooper Physical Science Building. To join the event, participants paid ten dollars online or at the door to support GTU.
There were two boards where three groups would compete for the most points using basic jeopardy rules. The winner in each group moved into the final round where the contestant with the most points after the final jeopardy would win $30.
“We always enjoy doing it every year. I think that this year too was pretty enjoyable event. It was one of the more enjoyable events,” Smart said.
“It’s in the style of Jeopardy that everyone is familiar with, it’s all related to geography, so we have probably been doing it for at least 15 years,” professor of Geography at Ball State Dr. Reuben Allen said.
The event attracted many different students, but the group is always looking for more.
“We always try to get new members in every semester, you just come to me or even Doctor Rueben Allen and we will get you set up,” Smart said.
