The big fat Erasmus University pub quiz

Join the first Erasmus University Pub Quiz

It’s the one you’ve all been waiting for: this Thursday the first ever Erasmus Pub Quiz will take place at the Erasmus Paviljoen!

Pit your general knowledge against your fellow students this Thursday from 8pm! Erasmus Magazine and Studium Generale have put together a quiz that spans the vast areas of expertise held by Erasmus University and Erasmus MC’s students, teachers, and professors.

Erasmus University scientists will pose questions – through videos, live experiments, and demonstrations – to find the best and brightest team in the house.

Expect obscure facts, near-impossible challenges, and plenty of laughs as you show off your knowledge about everything from folk music and the human skeleton, to the financial crisis.

Bring friends or hook up with others to form a team of five. All you need to bring is your smartphone so you can join the interactive quiz with videos and live demonstrations.

Still not convinced? Here are a few taster questions to get you in the mood. They're easy peasy, as you can see:

1. What is genuphobia?

A. Fear of that which is perceived to be foreign or strange.

B. Fear of one's own knees or someone else's knees or the act of kneeling.
