The New College chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) will host their first trivia night of the semester on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. There will be free pizza and prizes for the top three teams. After a successful legal trivia night last year, the club decided to host another trivia night this semester.
The NCF ACLU chapter has been active on campus this fall. The Know Your Rights panel, held this October, had an estimated 30 to 35 students in attendance, according to first-year Evan Hunter, director of communications for the club.
The club collaborates to come up with the questions for the trivia night. According to Hunter, the club is working to include questions about civil liberties and constitutional law.
“[Constitutional law is] a very relevant topic,” Hunter said. “Even if you’re not interested in going into law, constitutional law still affects you because it affects politics in a very meaningful way.”
The club plans to have people participate in small teams, but Hunter encouraged everyone to show up to event, even if they did not have a team set.
“We will find you a team,” Hunter said. “We’ll make it happen. It’s New College, people are very inclusive and open.”
Hunter sees the trivia night as providing the chance to see if one is interested in the legal profession, learn about legal principles and de-stress from finals week.
“I hope it will be a good de-stressor for people in those reading days,” Hunter said. “Like you’ve been studying for most of the day trying to get ready for your exams and then you can come to the trivia night, you can just kind of relax, eat some pizza and have some fun and look at some of the legal stuff and enjoy it.”
Legal Trivia Night will be held on Thursday, Dec. 6 at 7 p.m. in HCL 8.
