There will be an update on Columbia Football on gocolumbialions.com released every Tuesday evening in 2013. 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!
It's been a long winter break but students are back on campus! The football team arrived and has already had a team meeting! The players have also done some strength and conditioning testing. The team will lift independently this week and begin working out at The Campbell Sports Center on Monday, January 28.
Social media has completely revolutionized the way people communicate. The statistics are staggering. Monthly active users of Facebook now total nearly 850 million. (source: Jeff Bullas). There are 175 million tweets sent from Twitter every day in 2012. (source: Infographics Labs). Over 4 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube (source: YouTube).
