A Tradition is Born — Rockefeller's First Annual Jeopardy Challenge Brings Students and Alums Together

Rockefeller College's First Annual Alumni-Student Jeopardy Challenge was by all accounts a huge success!

The event, which coincided with the Rockefeller College Dean's Leadership Council kickoff party for the spring 2013 semester, was held on January 22 at locations throughout Husted Hall on the University at Albany's downtown campus. Sixteen teams battled over four rounds of intense but fun play. Rockefeller faculty developed questions in a number of political science and public administration and policy-related categories ranging from "Political Pop" and "Poli-flicks" to "Contracting" and "International Trade." Over 150 students, alumni, faculty and staff participated in the Challenge, leading to a full house of spectators for the final match. Congrats to the members of runner-up team "The Wolf Pack" (David Belsky, MPA '09; Kathryn DiLello, MPA '08; Emily Schwartz, MPA student; and Laura Stetson, MPA '10) and to the winning team "Schadenfreude" (Cyndi Mellen, MPA '12; Brian Peter, MPA '12; and Ben Spear, MPA '12).
