    Dodgeball: The Sport Where There is No Fourth Wall

    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.
