To show support for the team’s players, families, and the Humboldt community, we encourage all Columbia College students, staff, and faculty to wear sports jerseys / sports team uniforms, or green and yellow on Thursday, April 12 (tomorrow). If you would like to help raise money for the players and families affected, we will also be setting up a donation jar in the Administration office on the 2nd floor.
