UND Student Makes 'Jeopardy' Debut

The UND Memorial Union was turned into a Jeopardy viewing party.

The UND Memorial Union was turned into a Jeopardy viewing party.

Stephanie Gagelin, a sophomore Clinical Lab Sciences major, made her debut on Jeopardy.

She is one of 15 college students to make it.

Being on the game show was a lifelong dream of hers, and knowing the answers was not as hard as being the first to buzz in.

Friends and family were on-hand to cheer her on, and so were UND President and First Lady, Robert and Marcia Kelley.

Gagelin came in third with a score of 13,999.

Even though she will not advance, the viewing party was still a lot of fun.

"It's just such an exciting feeling, knowing I was just on TV. Everyone I know wanted to see it so bad," said Gagelin.

Gagelin is thinking about buying a camera with part of the $5,000 she won.
