How much do you know about The Office? Would you dare to say that you are a hardcore fan? If you know all there is to know about bears, beets and Battlestar Galactica, then come join the Campus Activities Board (CAB) on Tuesday, Nov. 26, for “The Office Trivia Night.” 

“We hope to make themed trivia a reoccuring event at GVSU, and The Office is our first pick,” said Jessica Fillmore, President of the Campus Activities Board. “It’s a show that is pretty popular with our students on campus, and we had received quite a few requests for an Office themed event in the past. We hope to make trivia night a casual, low key event that students can come socialize at throughout the year.” 

Liking The Office may not be a personality trait, but it can carry you and your friends to trivia victory. For the students who have seen every episode — for some more than three times — the event will showcase questions that even the most die-hard fan wouldn’t be able to answer easily. Everyone is encouraged to bring their friends and meet at the Pere Marquette room in the Kirkhof Center at 7 p.m. With teams of up to six people, everyone will compete in a seven round questioning session, where the winners will be able to earn a prize for their trivia efforts. 

The Office being a widely loved comedy that a lot of people can find common ground on quoting or laughing about different episodes definitely contributed to CAB choosing this theme,” said Fillmore. “We hope students who come out to trivia night will have a lot of fun, and maybe make some new friends with similar interests.”
