Someone who made it out of thousands to be on the college edition of Jeopardy. Who is UND student Stephanie Gagelin?

Gagelin is a sophomore clinical lab sciences major who spent a year trying to get on Jeopardy.

She took an online test last fall on the Jeopardy website, and heard back by last May.

They asked her to come back for an interview and try her hand at a test game.

She is one of 15 college students to make it and win an all-expenses paid trip to LA.

She taped her episode last week, and did a few things to stay sharp.

"I was taking online tests, watching Jeopardy everyday obviously. Just trying to stay current with news and found my school work kind of helps too," said Gagelin.

Gagelin could not say much about her episode except each contestant was guaranteed $5,000.

She can be seen on her favorite game show on November 11.
