What's New

UC Berkeley is proud to have hosted a series of quiz bowl tournaments called the California Cup! Teams will compete in four tournaments across the school year and get prizes (books! gift cards! trophies!) at each tournament, along with opportunities to qualify for both national tournaments. The third of these tournaments will be the California Classic, held on January 19. Check out the website for this here: California Cup

The 2013 ACF and COllegiate Novice tournaments were a success! Berkeley fielded 9 teams for the Novice tournamnet.

The Fall 2012 Novice Quiz Bowl tournament took place at least two stories underground, in the middle of UC Berkeley's Main Stacks library.
