Communication Majors Produce Memory of First CIU Intercollegiate Athletic Contest

Columbia International University Communication majors Tim LaPointe and Timothy Wolff have produced a video that records the first intercollegiate athletic contest in CIU’s 90-year history.  LaPointe and Wolff had cameras rolling at the new CIU soccer field when the CIU Rams defeated the Toccoa Falls Eagles 1-0 on Aug. 25 this year. 

The two-minute video features a pre-game prayer of dedication by CIU President Bill Jones as well as comments from Jones, CIU Athletics Director Kim Abbott and CIU freshman Daniel Mallard who scored the first goal in CIU history.
