Being in architecture school is all about slaving away at your desk all day and
throughout the night, right? Although this might be the norm, the University
at Buffalo Architecture Graduate Student Association organized and hosted a
school-wide, interdepartmental dodgeball tournament February 18, 2012. The very
idea of dodgeball and being able to vent some energy generated so much
interest, some teams had to be turned away. The tournament was a series of games
between 20 teams comprised of undergraduate and graduate level architecture and urban planning students, staff, and faculty.
The tournament sought to foster more interconnectivity between classes and
programs, spur team building, and yes, get students away from their computers
to exercise for an afternoon.
Due to the great success of the event, the GSA sees this as an event
to keep in their regular line-up of activities that occur throughout the semester.
Hopefully, there will be a rematch at the end of the spring semester. Below are a few images from the day.
