12 Days of #BrockUTrivia

12 Days of #BrockUTrivia

Think exams are the only way to flex your brain muscle these days?

We’ve unleashed the ultimate test of knowledge with the 12 Days of #BrockUTrivia contest.

Check your Twitter feed every day between Dec. 6 and 18 and watch for trivia questions about Brock news, events and milestones from the past year.

We’ll ask three questions each day (at approximately 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.) and those who answer correctly before the next question is asked will be entered into a daily draw for a gift certificate for either the Campus Store or Dining Services. Answer all three questions correctly and you’ll be entered three times in the draw.

Participating is easy. Just follow @brockuniversity and reply to the original tweet, making sure to include #BrockUTriva in your answer. You must be a Brock student, staff or faculty member to participate.

Check this page daily for winners and answers.
