Update on Columbia Football - January 8, 2013
New Year, New Features
Beginning January 2013, there will be an update on Columbia Football on gocolumbialions.com released every Tuesday evening. The features will include updates on the team's off-season workouts, dates to remember and other team information that will keep you in the know about the Columbia Football program.
We know recruiting is what everyone wants to know about! Our recruiting process is in full swing. We have already hosted two recruiting weekends and plan to have two more. We are so lucky to have a number of our outstanding faculty and University leadership involved in recruiting process. Our number one goal in recruiting is to create competition. We will do that with this class. We are very pleased with where we are right now.
Meet the Pride of Morningside
One of Coach Mangurian's first priorities when he arrived on Morningside Heights was get the campus community involved with the Columbia Football program. Coach Mangurian has a solid group of University Leadership, faculty and staff that are involved in many facets of the Columbia Football Program. Columbia's faculty, staff and University Leadership were excited to be involved.

Did You Know?
You want to know every single incoming first-year's name right this instant, don't you? Unfortunately, that can't happen. In the Ivy League there are rules pertaining to when schools can release names of incoming student-athletes. Since there is no letter of intent, the rules are a bit different.
The rule has different layers to it, but in short, at Columbia, a prospective student-athlete is considered "signed" when they send back their signed admission statement and they have paid their deposit. We are unable to comment on student-athlete commitments until that time. Coach Mangurian will not release names until the entire class is complete and have paid their deposits.
Mark your calendars! The last practice of spring ball will be Saturday, May 4.
