By Michael A. Lanier

The 2017-2018 CIU men’s and women’s basketball teams were introduced with a little madness —Moore Madness — a fun October event for students, faculty and staff in the Moore Fitness Center.    

It was a night of food and fun competitions with a basketball theme.

“I think this is a really cool event, and I'm glad that I came,” said freshman Jaelyn Rodriguez-Laureano.

Praying for Las Vegas

CIU flags at half staff

How are you praying for those affected by the mass shooting in Las Vegas? In a statement, President Donald Trump said, “To the families of the victims: We are praying for you and we are here for you, and we ask God to help see you through this very dark period.”

So, what are you praying? Columbia International University professors were asked about their prayers for Las Vegas.

For over 19 years, Mrs. Kilgus has taught general music and choir at all levels of primary and secondary education. That has led her to also produce and direct middle and high school musicals, direct All-City choirs and prepare students for competition in All-State choirs. In addition, Mrs. Kilgus has performed in community theater.

Mrs. Kilgus’ research explored the effects of kinesthetic instruction on music learning in choral ensembles. She has observed that through participation in music ensembles, students learn self-discipline, experience team work, build self-confidence, and develop creativity.  

Mrs. Kilgus believes music has the power to stir the emotions and to deliver important, memorable messages to the soul. Consequently, Christian music educators have the unique opportunity to teach music from a biblical perspective, encouraging young people to use their musical gifts to glorify God through psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs that focus on worship, doctrine, and the human experience, respectively.
