DEVLIN 008 — Students in Professor James Gallagher’s Globalization II class were met with confusion on Monday when a man that looked like a stretched-out mannequin of a leprechaun stood at the front of the room and proceeded to proctor their open note midterm exam.
After the 9 AM class began promptly at 9:22, the unidentified started reciting pre-rehearsed puns. He told the class to prepare for the exam, which he called the “Jesuit Jeopardy” and the “Flutie Family Feud” by taking out their iClickers. This man was no other than the Provost of Proctoring himself — HQ Trivia’s Scott Rogowsky.
“I thought I was set after the first question was ‘Does Newton Campus have a strong sense of: smell, taste, or community’, but when ‘Qumero numero cinco’ was, ‘Where does Father Leahy live?’ I just had to guess the Gasson bell tower,” said Johnathan Connors (MCAS ’20).
“SAVAGE question!” Scott said as half of the class got up and left out of boredom.
Other question topics included, “Why does O’Connell House exist?,” “Can you name your Resident Director?” and “Who put the printers in Lower?”
The nightmare did not end for senior Alex Roberts (CSOM ’18).
“Not only do I have to do deal with the fact that I am still in Globalization, but now Scott from HQ is following me everywhere I go. Instead of someone at Eagle’s asking me what kind of salad I wanted, I heard someone say, ‘this is the real KING of the salads,’ and then Scott handed me a Caesar salad. Then when I went to pay the cashier said, ‘are you paying with the flex plan or some Eagle Buckerinos?’ I looked, and the cashier was Scott. I tried to run away but he just said, ‘See you tomorrow at 3 PM and 9 PM EST!’”
The winner of the Globalization exam was awarded with $0.69 and a coupon for free kombucha from the CoRo Café.
