Changing Java SDK in IntelliJ IDEA 13

We just migrated to Java 1.8.  In my personal computer, I installed the JDK 1.8 and make sure that Maven was running fine in using the latest Java version.  I'm using a Mac, so when I ran it in Terminal everything worked.  However, when I ran it in my IntelliJ IDEA, it said that it was running Java 1.7.

To changed it, go to the following menu: File, Project Structure, then click on Project.
Here is where you can set the SDK for your project.  Just change it to the right SDK and that's it.

Happy coding.
