The first ever UNC-Duke Trivia Night jointly organized by our very own Business Technology Club and the Duke Fuqua High Tech Club at Mez in Durham on the 27th of March was a resounding success. We saw a large turnout from both schools at the event and we’re grateful for all the alumni that attended.
The evening started with some food and drinks that the clubs had arranged for. After the crowd settled in and got comfortable, the first round “Tech Trivia” fired up the geeks in the house to answer some really challenging yet fun questions created by Soemoe Aung (‘2012). Do you know the next Android operating system after the Ice Cream Sandwich? Or were you really browsing TechCrunch and Mashable seriously to know the top 10 iPhone apps of all time? The winning team really new their stuff as they were able to answer almost all of the questions correctly.
Later we saw the two Blues mix a bit and the teams for the General Trivia round were a healthy mix of both UNC and Duke folks. If you are always tuned in to your Pandora or Spotify and know the top 10 songs of 2011 as ranked by the Billboard Music Awards, you were thoroughly missed at the Trivia night! Some other interesting questions were “what breed is President Obama’s dog “Bo”? (Well, no prizes for guessing, it’s a Portuguese Water Dog!).
All in all , the event was really well organized and was great fun! Special thanks to Jae Lee, Soemoe Aung, Matt Hartley (Duke), Maciej Dudek and the rest of the folks who made this event a great success.
