Faculty and Alumni Triumph in Online Trivia Battle

The CHC’s annual Battle of the Brains trivia competition was adapted to an online format thanks to the innovation of our students, alumni, and staff.  From the online buzzer system to the creative virtual backgrounds, to the delicate ballet that is Zoom + YouTube live coordination, Battle of the Brains was brought to more than 100 viewers on the evening of Monday, May 11.  Audience members had watch parties, engaged in a lively discussion in the chat, and entered into an opportunity drawing for prizes.  Thank you to everyone who tuned in and to all who participated to make this event a success!

Congratulations to the victors, our faculty and alumni!
