Two community advisers for Irwin Hall have put together a Jeopardy event they hope will help students build life skills.

Kat Oleksa and Jenna Biagi have included questions about job interviews, resumes and other life skills. The event is from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday in the Irwin Hall lounge and is open to Lindenwood residents.

Oleksa said community advisers were striving this year to put on more events that will lead to improving lives for the students and residents.

“We [Jenna and I] just thought that even if you already have a job, or you were looking for a new one, that it would really help,” Oleksa said. “So, we just wanted something that is beneficial to the public.”

Oleksa and Biagi have two Starbucks gift cards to hand out to the winners of the event, and refreshments including coffee, hot chocolate, cookies and brownies.

The advisers hope for a good turnout to the event because jeopardy is a game that everyone can play.;

“I hope that people leave the event with some more knowledge about what to do with job interviews or resumes and not just that, but life skills too,” Oleksa said.

They wanted to touch on topics that aren’t taught in high school. Oleksa said she hears from her residents that high school didn’t teach them real life skills.

“I just hope that people leave it feeling accomplished and informed,” Oleksa said.
