Students can compete for prizes this Thursday at Silent Library, a game show event hosted by The Syndicate in the Willis Library forum at 8:30 p.m.

Anthropology junior Emma Carnes created the event, which is based on the MTV game show of the same name. Teams of students will do outrageous challenges in the library and the team with the most points after each round will win a cash prize.

“Each team will have to do one challenge from each level of difficulty,” Carnes said. “It’s a very team-oriented game.”

Carnes encourages students to sign their team up through the Syndicate Facebook page. The event is open to participants and viewers. Different types of challenges include eating contests and more physical challenges.

The Syndicate staff has a greater challenge because of the lack of available space. Remodeling of the Union relocated them to Stovall Hall, losing access to the room that was designated for their events.

“We’re supposed to put on events in the Syndicate, in the Union,” Syndicate advisor Sergio Renovato said. “That was our sole purpose and we brainstormed events that would fit that space.”

Syndicate staff members aim to host 13 events throughout the semester. Some are staples such as Krappyoke and the One O’Clock Lab Band, but lately the team has tried to host more resourceful events, like Silent Library.

“We’re trying harder to be creative with our events,” staff member Josie Sinamano said. “We’re basically making sure people know we’re still here.”

Syndicate programs are funded by student fees and coordinated by students. Information about Syndicate events can be found on Twitter and Facebook.

“It’s important for students to come. They already pay for it,” Carnes said. “We put on events where people can enjoy themselves.”
