At the beginning of raven bingo, students were told of a new rule which left students excited and worried.

The new rule that was in place for the night was people who had bingo now had to also answer a trivia question to claim their prize. If the student didn’t know the answer they could ask a friend for help. If their friend got the answer wrong also, the current game would resume.

48 students located in Spag Hall quickly tried to remember all they could about FPU in case they got bingo. Freshman Lauryn Rogers said, “I thought it was a unique twist to include trivia questions.”

Junior Katey Comstock also enjoyed the new rule. Comstock said, “I liked that there were trivia facts about Franklin Pierce.”

The questions asked had to do with the athletics program, buildings on campus, and information about the founding of the university. One question, for example, was “Where do students go for help on a writing assignment?”

Once the trivia question was correctly answered, the winner was given a tote bag filled with franklin pierce gear. Some of the prizes included were a cup, a lanyard, a mouse pad, sticky notes, and maple syrup.

Raven bingo was the last event of the Academic Showcase and was a “very calm and collective game,” said Comstock.





There is a crisis of trust in journalism right now. Many Americans say they don’t trust the news media anymore, and poll after poll shows that they want newspapers to be more transparent about how the news is gathered. This semester the Exchange is asking its reporters to describe what they did to report the facts, in what we’re calling a transparency statement. We ask our readers to feel free to use the comment boxes at the bottom of each article to call them out when the reporters may not have done enough and to compliment them when you think they’ve done a good job.

I attended raven bingo at 5 pm in Spag Hall. During the event, I took notes about the new rules and what was happening. I counted how many people took place in the game to get an accurate count. I conducted my interviews in person once the event was done. I took multiple photos during the event and picked the one I thought was best.
