HUD/PSYCH Trivia Results (September 2007)

Who are our most recent recipients of fame and fortune? Read on for September’s trivia answers and winners!

Question: What are the 5 elements that need to be in balance to promote positive “chi” according to Feng Shui philosophy?
Answer: We had six correct answers to this one, but Laura Schultz was the lucky student who got it right and had her name drawn.  Nice job, Laura, for knowing that fire, wood, earth, water and metal need to be in balance to promote positive “chi.”  And here we thought it was extroversion, neuroticism, conscientiousness, agreeableness, and openness.  I guess that’s something different.

Faculty Trivia Results (September 2007)

Question: Which faculty member has been driving his/her colleagues “pipistrello-í” (translation: “batty”) by practicing newly-acquired skills in conversational Italian language?
Answer: Quite a few correct answers once again, but Christian Eversen is the lucky winner who knew that Dr. Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges has been practicing her conversational Italian lately.  How did Christian and so many others know that she was trying to learn Italian?  Well, it could be that she spoke it non-stop for several weeks.  Was it in preparation for a trip to Italy? Yes.  Did she bring us all back presents? No.  Are we bitter?  Si, absolutemente!
