Housing Questions

Will housing for guests be available on campus?

Due to a limited amount of lodging space at MidAmerica Nazarene University we are giving first priority to student participants, adult quiz coaches/group leader, and event volunteers for on-campus housing. If you are not a quiz participant (student or quiz coach/group leader), but are interested in housing options on campus, you can add your name to a waitlist here. Following the registration deadline of June 4 we will assess on campus housing availability. Once the assessment has been completed USA/Canada NYI will contact potential guests who are able to fill the open spots based on the order requests were received. Once you are contacted you will have 24 hours to elect into on-campus housing. After that time period your spot will be offered to someone else. There is no guarantee of on-campus housing for those on the waitlist, so please consider other arrangements as needed.

Will linens be available?

How do I know if a team should be in the Novice or Experienced Division?

This is a common question! Coaches have the final say in what division their teams will compete. The only exception is a quizzer competing on a field team cannot also compete on a novice team. Ultimately, the appropriate division is based on the teams’ abilities as a whole as opposed to the level of any one particular quizzer on the team.  To provide some further guidance we have put together a list of questions to help you make a decision on what is the most appropriate division for the team.

  1. When does the team generally jump on a question? If it is consistently toward the beginning of a question we recommend placing them in the Experienced Division. If it is consistently toward the end or after hearing the complete question we recommend placing them in the novice division.
  2. In general, what is the commitment level of the team? Teams in the Experienced Division usually devote several hours a week to studying and memorizing verses. If your team does not commit as much time they will likely feel more comfortable in the novice division.

How many members of your team competed at your Field’s Finals on a District or Local team and finished in the Top 20 overall on your Field? If you have more than one quizzer who placed in the Top 20 of your Field Finals, then your team should quiz in the Experienced Division.  If your team has one or fewer members who finished in the Top 20 at your Field Finals, you will need to assess the overall competitiveness of the team based on your answers to question #1 and question #2 above.
