Deerfield Academy Trivia Question of the Week

Welcome to the Campus Store’s weekly Deerfield Trivia for Spring Term! We’ll randomly draw four winners each week from amongst those students who’ve correctly answered the trivia question. Prizes donated by our vendors include, T-shirts, Sweatshirts and Sticker packs. Be sure to play each week!

Last week’s question was:

What was the name of the first Deerfield Academy student newspaper?

Answer: 1918

Unfortunately, many of you thought we were looking for the origination of The Evensong, which was 1930. However, we were looking for the tradition of gathering together on Sunday Evening for the singing of hymns and Academy songs. This started in 1918.  

This is our last week for Trivia! Be sure to check the clue at the Athletic Store this week for help in getting the correct answer so that you’ll be eligible for our final prizes!

Congratulations to our winners randomly selected from all correct answers:

Osegie Osayimwen
Jessie Rooney
Lexi Seriana
Annie Gouchee


This week’s question:


As DA alumnus Dixon McDonald ’07 and his teammates completed the 2020 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge race (otherwise known as ‘The World’s Toughest Row’) they had to contend with a dangerous fish of what species?
