Cronkite Academic Bowl Teams Are Being Formed
Thousands of dollars are up for grabs!

It’s that time of year again. Yes, the beginning of the academic year, but also time to assemble the Cronkite School teams for the 2011 ASU Academic Bowl!

In the Academic Bowl teams from various ASU Colleges and Schools compete against one another head-to-head in battles of knowledge across a variety of subjects. Questions span a variety of topics.

The Cronkite School will have two separate teams of four undergraduate students each. To be eligible, you must be registered for at least 12 credit hours and not be on academic probation. Dr. Joseph Russomanno is the advisor for our teams.

To select the teams, we will administer a qualifying exam to interested candidates. The top eight scores will be chosen, and two alternates. These exams will be administered in the Cronkite Building’s Room 240-A, accessed through the Advising Center. Select the time slot that works for you:

Tues., Aug. 30, 10:30 a.m.
Wed., Aug. 31, 4:00 p.m.
Thurs., Sept. 1, 2:00 p.m.

Ask for Alicia Tang-Mills. She will proctor the exams. You will have 30 minutes to complete the exam.

In order to hold your place for a qualifying exam, please respond directly to Dr. Russomanno by e-mail (russo@asu.edu) by Monday, Aug. 29. Include which exam date you will attend. (If it’s absolutely impossible to attend one of these periods, but you’re still interested in participating, contact Dr. Russomanno.)

Very important: Becoming a team member requires a commitment to attend both the matches and practice sessions. The latter will be held on dates and times that will work with team members’ schedules. Opening round matches will be held Oct. 3 and 4, 4:00-6:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. Those matches are in the Memorial Union on the Tempe Campus. The semi-final and final rounds will be held Oct. 6.

Academic Bowl- Got The Brains to Compete?

Thousands of dollars are up for grabs!

We are assembling the Cronkite School teams for the 2011 ASU Academic Bowl!

In the Academic Bowl teams from various ASU Colleges and Schools compete against one another head-to-head in battles of knowledge across a variety of subjects. Questions span a variety of topics.

The Cronkite School will have two separate teams of four undergraduate students each. To be eligible, you must be registered for at least 12 credit hours and not be on academic probation. Dr. Joseph Russomanno is the advisor for our teams.

To select the teams, we will administer a qualifying exam to interested candidates. The top eight scores will be chosen, and two alternates. These exams will be administered in the Cronkite Building’s Room 240-A, accessed through the Advising Center. Select the time slot that works for you:

Tues., Aug. 30, 10:30 a.m.
Wed., Aug. 31, 4:00 p.m.
Thurs., Sept. 1, 2:00 p.m.

Ask for Alicia Tang-Mills. She will proctor the exams. You will have 30 minutes to complete the exam.

In order to hold your place for a qualifying exam, please respond directly to Dr. Russomanno by e-mail (russo@asu.edu) by Monday, Aug. 29. Include which exam date you will attend. (If it’s absolutely impossible to attend one of these periods, but you’re still interested in participating, contact Dr. Russomanno.)

Very important: Becoming a team member requires a commitment to attend both the matches and practice sessions. The latter will be held on dates and times that will work with team members’ schedules. Opening round matches will be held Oct. 3 and 4, 4:00-6:00 p.m. and 7:00-9:00 p.m. Those matches are in the Memorial Union on the Tempe Campus. The semi-final and final rounds will be held Oct. 6. Those are at KAET in the Cronkite Building.
