LPAC Trivia night attracts students, faculty

Trivia night provided many laughs for all contestants.

Last Friday, the  Loper Programming Activities Council held a trivia night in the Nebraska Student Union. For social distancing purposes, the teams gathered in the seating area outside of Chik-Fil-A and The Antelope room.

The students looked forward to the event.

“The first trivia night is about just having a fun night with your friends and no one really has an advantage because we chose a variety of different popular topics that a wide variety of people would know,” said Bailey Gittler, a UNK senior majoring in communications disorders. “Our topics are Netflix, sports, music, slogans, logos, general knowledge, and what-country-am-I-in.”

Teams could consist of up to four members. Teams could not use phones or computers to look up answers, and there was a time limit of 30 seconds for writing down answers. 

Each category had 10 questions. Answers were written on score sheets, which were checked by the LPAC members. 

Thirty-three teams competed to win the cash prize. The prize for first place was $100 and the second place prize was $50. The LPAC members hosting the trivia night were Bailey Gittler and Olivia Koenig. 

For some students, the goal might have been to win the cash prize, but for others it was to have fun and test their knowledge with friends. 

Team “No Name” was the winner of the LPAC trivia night with 45 points. The “No Name” members included Emily Stadler, Abby Marshall, Derek Patterson and Joel Bradley.  In second place was “Team Patrol,” which included Jessie Daake, Seth Simanson and Adrian Almeidaand. They ended up with a total of 40 points. 

 Events LPAC hosts are to encourage student involvement and create a sense of union with the student body. 

“Students should participate in these events because it gives them opportunities to meet more people on campus and get more involved,” Gittler said. “LPAC still hosts meetings every Thursday at 5 p.m. in the Ponderosa Room. Anyone who is interested in joining can come to our meetings and be a part of planning events that we can do this year.”

The LPAC, like many organizations, is following the safety guidelines of the UNK COVID-19 plan.

“We have basically tried to do what we already are doing in the Union for meals and daily activities to be careful about COVID,” said Tim Danube, the student organization adviser. “We ask people to wear masks, keep a 6 foot distance. There can be no more than 4 people at a table. We disinfect and have supplies of wipes and sanitizer.” 

LPAC works hard creating events for students, so that they can come together and have fun as a Loper family. 

An upcoming LPAC event on campus will be a Build-a-Bear activity in the Nebraska Student Union room 132. It will occur from 10 a.m-2p.m. Oct. 28-29. Lopers are welcome to attend.
