Getting in on the CIU Excitement

CIU Undergraduate Overnight Event

Dozens of young people got a taste of college life at the Undergraduate Overnight Event at Columbia International University in early April.

They sat in on a class, mingled with professors and slept overnight in the residence halls. Plus, they got to know current CIU students around a bonfire at The Pointe, a beautiful spot on campus above the Broad River with the Columbia skyline rising above the horizon.
