Loyola Student Continues on Jeopardy! Tonight

Loyola press release - January 18, 2006

(New Orleans) — Loyola University New Orleans Junior Kevin Marshall will appear on the television game show Jeopardy! tonight at 6 p.m. on WVUE-Fox 8. This will be Marshall's seventh day on Jeopardy! His total winnings, as of last night's show, is $98,201.

Marshall is a junior majoring in classical studies, and he is a native of Metairie, Louisiana. He took the qualifying test for Jeopardy! in Atlanta in February 2005. While attending College of the Holy Cross in Massachusetts for the 2005 fall semester, Jeopardy! called Marshall in October to be a contestant.

“It was nerve-racking but fun. I don’t think you can really expect what’s going to happen,” says Marshall about his experiences when participating in the game show. Marshall has returned to New Orleans to complete his degree at Loyola.
