The Graduate Biochemistry Student Association (gBSA) crowned its first champion of the department-wide trivia night on August 30, 2018.
 
The Graduate Biochemistry Student Association (gBSA) hosted a trivia night to test the knowledge of Chemistry & Biochemistry faculty, postdocs, and graduate students. Teams consisted of members of biochemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and inorganic chemistry labs with over 80 department members attending. In addition to being a social event before the start of the school year, the event was also a way to bring multiple disciplines together and help continue to build a collaborative environment amongst the chemistry and biochemistry communities. Food and beverages were provided by the Math and Physical Science Council (MPSC). 
 

Over 80 people attended the gBSA hosted trivia night in Young Hall 2033.
