The Department of Biomedical Engineering held its first annual Faculty/Staff vs. Students Basketball Game on February 28 at the Campus Recreational Center.

Cheered on by Dean Iwan Alexander, Desland Robinson, and Julie Calma, the game ended in a 42-42 tie after a final shot by the faculty/staff team missed its mark. The faculty/staff team, led by Drs. Allan Dobbins, Dale Feldman, and Anna Sorace, took an early lead and led for the entire game until the last few minutes when the students tied the game with 10 seconds left on the clock.

Overall, this was great opportunity for faculty and staff to interact with students in an informal setting outside of the classroom. We look forward to more faculty/student sporting events and hope this is the beginning of many more to come.

Special thanks to Nicholas Dietschweiler, the BMES student body president for organizing this wonderful event, and many thanks to everyone that participated and came out to cheer!
