Battle of the Brains

Battle of the Brains is a fast paced question and answer game. Questions cover many subject
areas including current events, literature, history, religion, social and natural sciences, art, music, sports, and entertainment. Providence College students may be particularly suited to Battle of the Brains competition because of our Development of Western Civilization program.

Battle of the Brains is a wonderful exercise in the integration of a student's academic and co-curricular experiences. Teams of four square off during a timed question and answer session. During the two halves, the score is tallied which will determine the winner at the end of the game. The top four teams with the best records make the playoffs consisting of a semi-final and final round to determine the Battle of the Brains champion.

Faculty, staff, and students who would like to volunteer are welcome to by contacting the S.A.I.L. Office at 401-865-2211 or by stopping by Slavin 106.  Teams who are interested in participating should contact the S.A.I.L. Office.

All volunteers and at least one member from each team must attend this session.  The rules of play will be distributed and each team will have a chance to practice with the buzzers!  Any team that does not send a representative will forfeit their place in the tournament and we will select the next team from the waiting list (and we ALWAYS have a waiting list so don't lose your spot!)
