Dr. Penglase and Students Attend Soccer Match in Brazil

Dr. Penglase and Students Attend Soccer Match in Brazil

On Sunday, October 29, Prof. Ben Penglase, who is teaching in a USAC study abroad program in Florianopolis, Brazil, took students in his Culture of Brazil class to watch local soccer team Avai play against third-placed Gremio. The students - including Loyola students Mike O'Donnell (Anthropology major), Colleen Wimmer (Anthropology minor) and Bella Lee (International Studies major) -  watched an exciting 2-2 game and experienced Brazilian passion for futebol first-hand. They also report expanding the more colorful side of their Portuguese vocabulary.
