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.

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.

Empire's Blessing

Empire College is blessed to have Henry Trione as its founder. "By any measure one of the Redwood Empire's leading men of all time," as Press Democrat writer Chris Smith described him in today's front-page story, Henry has lead an interesting and rich life.

Introducing ... Part 5: Empire Law Grads 2014

The final group of Empire Class of 2014 Juris Doctor graduates has worked in each of the five pro bono clinics offered at Empire, contributing to a class total of 87% participation in the clinics. This dedication to community service is indeed impressive and contributed to Empire College's national recognition on the President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll the past two years.

Introducing ... Part 4: Empire Law Grads 2014

It's always interesting to see what undergraduate degrees and professional experience Empire law students possess. Today's trio of grads is blending backgrounds in linguistics and technology, global studies and Worker's Compensation benefits, and special education/deafness with their legal education. 

Introducing ... Part 3: Empire Law Grads 2014

Among the three of them, today's graduates participated in all five of Empire's pro bono law clinics plus the Moot Court team! They have taken advantage of every opportunity for the theoretical and practical legal education offered at Empire Law School.

Introducing ... Empire Law Graduates 2014

As the Juris Doctor graduates of the Empire College School of Law Class of 2014 prepare for their commencement exercises this Sunday afternoon, we thought it would be fun to introduce them through a series of blog posts. This group of dynamic people entered law school with diverse educational and employment backgrounds. We wish them the best of luck as they pursue their careers in law and contribute further to the community.
