Several Edinboro students, professor and administrators participated in the first ever student and faculty college bowl last Thursday, in multipurpose room B of the Frank G. Pogue Student Center.

Edinboro University English and philosophy associate professor Dr. Roger Solberg started the competition off by explaining the rules to the students and faculty members. “The students playing tonight will be exhibiting knowledge that will not earn them one penny of a salary. What they will be demonstrating is that they have a very complex and interesting world inside their heads, and you cannot put a price on that,” said Solberg. He continued: “That is why we are a proud liberal arts institution, because this matters. Knowledge for its own sake matters.”

Teams were split up into two faculty teams, one administration team, a graduate student team and an undergrad team.

The competition came down to the graduate team – consisting of students Logan Lilly (communications), Andrew Confer (social sciences), Jonathan DiSalle (middle and secondary instruction) and Robert Chirilla (speech and language pathology) — taking on the second faculty team of Dr. Stacy Dunn (anthropology), Dr. Paul Rovang (English), Dr. Peter McLaughlin (psychology) and Dr. Richard Deal (geosciences).

The second faculty team beat the graduate students 295 – 95, and claimed the title as champions of the first student and faculty college bowl.
