Empire College students connect with the community to prepare them for the future. We believe the philanthropic spirit at Empire College sets us apart from other schools. It also gives our students real-world experience while helping them stand out from those they’ll be competing with for future careers.

Participation and membership in professional organizations provides students the opportunity to network while they are attending school. Organizations include the Institute of Management Accountants, Redwood Empire Association of Paralegals, International Association of Administrative Professionals, California Medical Assistants Association, and the Sonoma County Bar Association.

Threes- A Charm

Angie in her clinical class

Before I became the Evening Dean here, I taught some classes at Empire College. Even before that I taught high school. Eleven of those teaching years were at Analy High School. I especially liked having those freshman classes- still young and not jaded.  I remember one class about ten years ago a really pleasant, smart and enthusiastic student named Angie.

Empire Students' Klipmix How-To Video

Klipmix How-To Video

I'm excited to share a terrific how-to video created by Empire College students in their Entrepreneurship class. For their class project, these business majors decided to demonstrate how to use the free Klipmix video maker smart phone app. Through step-by-step instructions, you will learn how to edit your videos and add music and photographs.

I can't wait to give it a try! Check it out at http://youtu.be/AfOaaKvn874.

New Clinic Provides Law Students a "Complete Education"

Empire Law School students develop practical legal skills through clinic work.
 

Empire College has made the national President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll over the last two years for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is the formation of five law clinics in Sonoma County to help residents who otherwise might not be able to afford the help of legal counsel when problems arise.

'Tis Better to Give

Students Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Awareness

‘Tis better to give than to receive. I believe these sentiments to be true in my life. This simple saying does not say, however, that the giver is often the one who is blessed the most simply by being able to fulfill a need.
~Shannon Tinsley, Medical Department Head

Do you know what today is?

Empire College founder Henry Trione

A few years ago, September 8 was declared Henry Trione Day by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. For those who know Henry, they agreed it is a well deserved recognition. For those of us associated with Empire College, we are honored to have him as our founder 53 years ago and and our avid supporter today.

You All Shined !!

Hello Empire students and Alumni,

You were impressive at the Empire College Job Fair on Wednesday. 28 employers attended and here’s what some of the employers said about you:

“Your students are very impressive; they did an excellent job in presenting themselves professionally.”

“Great job on the job fair.  We ended up with quite a few contacts and have already schedule a number on interviews.”

They Sometimes Come in Pairs

Empire College Pair

 

As the evening dean I get to speak with many of the students on a regular basis.  Some students come to Empire as a couple, which has always aroused my curiosity.  One such couple is Darrell and Kat. I thought that for my first short interview that I would talk to them about their experience at Empire College.

How did it happen that you came to Empire College?

Darrell:  “Kat started the whole thing- the initiation.”
