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.

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.

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.”

Education Pays Off

This is a wonderful human interest story about an emergency that occurred this morning at the corner of Russell and Range as students and faculty were on their way to 9 a.m. classes. Three Empire students came to the rescue!

The background of the "emergency" is that an elderly man was rushing to get across the street and fell in the crosswalk, resulting in a head injury.
