 Swarthmore QuizBowl

The Swarthmore QuizBowl team participates in several economics-focused events each year, giving economics majors an opportunity to practice economics and finance trivia and meet peers from other institutions.  The team organizes charity fundraisers, helps people audition for TV shows like Jeopardy, and participates in 5-10 trivia tournaments a semester focusing on both economic and non-economic topics.  Swarthmore QuizBowl meets every Sunday at 3pm.  Questions can be directed to Martin Rakowszczyk.
