Howard University’s Jessika Agyepong Set To Compete In The ‘Jeopardy! National College Championship’ Quarterfinal
“Being in a place where I can really advocate for HBCU’s and show up-and-coming students that, 'hey you can go to an HBCU and be academically successful and stand up against Ivy Leagues and things like that,' that was really a prime motivator for preparing on the shows. Again, like a really really huge honor to be representing Howard," she said.

Agyepong is one of 36 college undergraduates participating in the championship, which began airing this past Tuesday and is broken up into 12 quarterfinal games. One winner from each quarterfinal game will then move on to the semifinals, followed by the finals on Tuesday, Feb. 22.
While the episodes were taped in November, the contestants have been keeping the championship outcome under wraps.
