NEW ROCHELLE, NY --The Iona College athletic department kicked off the 2015-16 school year with a preseason meeting and group photo Monday night. Director of Athletics Rick Cole Jr., Iona president Joseph E. Nyre, and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee president Jordan Courage addressed the 350+ student-athletes in the Hynes Center.

The three speakers addressed the privileges and responsibilities of being an NCAA Division I athlete, living the College and athletic department missions and in particular, what it means to represent the College's long standing motto, "Certa Bonum Certaman" or "Fight The Good Fight".

Following the address, the group assembled on Mazzella Field for a group photo and then moved on to the LaPenta quadrangle and joined Iona's Student Government association in their annual opening luau.
