Faculty vs. Students: An International Friendly Soccer Game


In the afternoon of May 7, 2015, students, faculty, and friends of the Department of Psychology gathered for a friendly end-of-semester soccer match on our Field of Dreams between Gateway, Maracanã, the Music Building, and Camp Nou.  For a few hours, we successfully channeled the talents of some of soccer’s greatest players:
