College Championship on Jeopardy!

See also

February 1 not only welcomes a new month, one in which we gain a day for Leap Year, but tomorrow is also the beginning of the 24th College Championship on the Jeopardy! game show.

This is one of many fun ways for college-bound students, especially those who are younger or who are in the early stages of their college search, to learn about campuses that may not receive as much media coverage, athletic accolades, local exposure, or name recognition.

More than 12,000 undergraduates began the competition, but only fifteen students from colleges and universities across the country have earned the chance to win the $100,000 grand prize.

While no campuses or students from Kansas City will be represented, there are current students and alumni in the metro area from many of those schools that will be featured in the tournament. Here is a list of the competitor institutions:

Three of the campuses are being represented on Jeopardy! for the first time: Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Eastern Illinois University, and Goucher College. Appearing for the 14th time, Harvard has been in the competition more often than any other college or university.

Jeopardy! airs weekdays at 4pm on KSHB.
