When University of Chicago academic librarian Emma Boettcher dethroned James Holzhauer we just had to salute her accomplishment. (Especially when we discovered she attended nearby Conestoga High School!)
Now that Boettcher’s run has concluded after three defenses, we’re honoring her achievement with a category of Villanova-themed Jeopardy! questions.
Think you got the smarts to run our board? See if you can answer them without peeking at the answer sheet at the bottom. The questions were created with the help of the book Villanova University: Ever Ancient, Ever New 1842-1992, by David R. Contosta, PhD, and the Rev. Dennis J. Gallagher, OSA, PhD.
1. What is “Tolle Lege”?
