October 19, 2017                                           Today is an “B” Day



Yesterday’s question was:  This college has a “whispering wall” that students can use to communicate with.  What is the name of the college??  There are actually 3 colleges with “whispering walls”.  The Ohio State University, UVA and the College Quad in Charlottesville.  2 students had the right answer, Destiny Rung and Kayla Little.  Please stop down to Guidance to get your prize. 


Today’s question is:  What elite secret society is Yale University famous for??  Stop in to Guidance if you know the answer.
