'Are You Smarter Than a Freshman' fundraiser Saturday

Flyer for the event

Welcome to the season premiere of "Are You Smarter Than a Freshman?" at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 9, in 1066 Durland Hall or via Zoom.

Each year, professors from departments across campus are invited to participate in the “Are You Smarter Than A Freshman?” fundraiser event. Engineers Without Borders-K-State chapter, a registered departmental student organization, puts a twist on the familiar game show by pitting K-State faculty members against each other in a competition to see who is the most fluent in youth culture. From internet trends to Gen-Z slang, watch as your favorite instructors duke it out from the comfort of your home or in the live audience.

Plus, unlike most boring TV shows, you will have the opportunity to affect the outcome of the competition! During the event, audience participation will play a key role in deciding the bye winner. If you want to get in on the action now, all you must do is submit a trivia question beforehand. Who knows, it may end up in our final production.

In addition to being a fun opportunity, the funds raised during the event will go toward a great cause. Engineers Without Borders-K-State aims to cultivate future leaders through partnerships with local and international communities to implement sustainable and long-lasting engineering solutions driven by the community’s needs, resources and constraints.
