Nicholls to Host Trivia Night Fundraiser

THIBODAUX, La. — Nicholls State University invites you to test your wit on all things South Louisiana in the second annual Big Bayou Trivia Bash.

The second edition of the College of Arts and Sciences fundraiser will be Friday, March 22 at 6 p.m. in the newly renovated Cotillion Ballroom in the Bollinger Student Union. Proceeds will be used for scholarships, student technology upgrades and to support high-impact learning practices.

“Trivia contests are always fun, exciting and instructional experiences,” said Dr. John Doucet, Alcee Fortier Distinguished Service Professor and dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. “We work hard to make our contest special and entertaining for participants because the ultimate goal – what’s most important – is helping our students at Nicholls become more successful graduates.”

Teams of six can sign up at $30 per individual for a chance to win cash or consolation prizes.

Teams will compete against one another in answering 10 categories of questions, including History, Sports, Entertainment and Louisiana. Additionally, the evening of fun will include some special brain buster challenges, which are more complicated questions for extra points.

During the event, individuals may also bid on donated silent auction items including rare books and sports items.
