Students in the Department of Radiologic Sciences are celebrating their second place win and top ten standing at the annual student quiz bowl that took place at the Association of Collegiate Educators in Radiologic Technology conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on Feb. 5-7.
Darby Lyon and Paige Tilden, both undergraduate radiologic sciences students, placed in the top ten finalists for the competition and Lyon went on to win second place of the quiz bowl.
“The student bowl was an incredible experience to meet and compete with radiology students from across the country,” said Lyon. “I’m so proud of how our group represented Boise State. It just reinforces how great our faculty are here at Boise State and how well prepared we are for this profession.”
An estimated 350 students competed in the student quiz bowl, hosted by the association who are asked rounds of questions that encompass the entire radiologic science curriculum. Topics ranged from radiation physics, anatomy, exposure principles, radiographic procedures, patient care, and radiation safety.
“The student bowl was unlike any experience I’ve had,” said Tilden. “While very nerve-racking, it was educational and a time where the knowledge I’ve learned in the program really showed. It was also wonderful to have the support from the rest of my classmates and professors cheering us on on the sidelines!”
“Darby and Paige both represented Boise State with such distinction,” said John Lampignano, clinical assistant professor for the Department of Radiologic Sciences. “They are excellent students who demonstrated high standards of the program.”
