What is an Excellent Accomplishment, Alex?
Arts and Science senior Zack Terrill was one of more than 12,000 undergraduates competing for just 15 spots available in the annual Jeopardy! College Championship and went on to finish as one of the competition’s top three winners. Terrill, a double major in chemistry and philosophy from Winter Springs, Fla., beat out competitors from schools such as Duke, Columbia, George Washington University, Harvard, MIT and Stanford to finish third overall and collect $25,000. A runner and member of Vanderbilt’s fencing club, Terrill plans on teaching math in Nashville in the fall.
