A freshman from the University of Notre Dame...

Christine Kennedy

Can you show us your school's song or cheer?
I can sing the fight song for you:
[Claps while singing] Cheer, cheer for old Notre Dame
Wake up the echoes cheering her name
Send a volley cheer on high
Shake down the thunder from the sky
What though the odds be great or small
Old Notre Dame will win over all
While her loyal sons are marching onward to victory!
[Raises right fist in air and cheers] Go Irish!

Are you proud to represent your school in the tournament?
Absolutely. It's a great school and I'm glad to be here.

Who is going to win the College Championship?
Hopefully I will.

What will you do with your winnings?
Um, some of it will go to tuition, but hopefully maybe get a car and tr--go to Ireland, so...

What advice did you get from friends, family & professors?
It's--[laughs] lotta people heard where it was and they were like, "Ooh..." And then I got told, "Well, if nothing else you should beat the USC kid." So, sorry. [Laughs]

What do you like most about Jeopardy!?
I just like seeing, like, the range of facts you can know and just th--how much it's there and connecting different things to come up with the answers.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In ten years, I will hopefully be in my second year of residency in, um, inner ear disorders and balance problems, so... don't know where, but hopefully one day I hope to get to the Cleveland Clinic, so...
