Ivies Fail At Jeopardy

The Jeopardy college championships concluded on Friday with a win for Washington University in St. Louis. Nick Yozamp, a bio major, won $100K for himself and eternal glory for his school.

The runners-up were Ryan Stoffers of UCLA and Surya Sabhapathy of the University of Michigan.

According to IvyGate
, Ivy competitors included representatives from Dartmouth, Yale, Columbia, Penn, and our very own Brown. Rebecca Maxfield appeared on the show on February 2nd. She won $11,974, but said the rules say she can only get a check for $5,000.

No Ivy Leaguer has won the competition since it began in 1989. More students with the surname “Brown” or “Browning” (4) have participated than Brown students (3).
