Friday, March 26 - Trivia Knight

Join us on Friday, March 27th from 7:00-8:30pm ET for Trivia Knight! Gather your best buds, pull out your thinking caps, and compete against your fellow alumni for prizes. Trivia questions will range from St. Mike’s history to pop culture to a deep dive into our school colors. Sign up today before spots fill up!

Please note that we require a team name at the time of submission and teams must have at least four members and up to 10 total members. Teams must be formed in advance and submitted within 24 hours of Trivia Knight.
