Sauder takes it with "prosopopoeia"


Sauder is normally associated with number crunching, but today the school proved its literary prowess when a team scooped the annual UBC United Way Spelling Bee.

Team “Show me the Honey” – a.k.a. Jan Wallace, Lianna McAdam, Christina Sylka and Lindsay Ure of David Lam Library – stole the award from the grasp of UBC Department of English, which lost the competition for the first time.

The winning word? "Prosopopoeia."

Sorry English, maybe next year.
