Just Announced: Empire College was named a finalist for the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning, and civic engagement - the 2013 Presidents's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll.
To put this in perspective, of the 5,000 colleges and universities in the country, 810 completed applications and 19 were finalists for the top award (another 671 were named to the honor roll).
Greetings Empire Students!
Why does anyone pay MORE than what they have to on their car payments? Why should you pay an extra $25 a month on your student loans?
Attached you will find an easy to use spreadsheet for any type of loan with a fixed interest rate! If you’ve already taken Business Math then you’ve learned that paying just a few extra dollars each month can save you THOUSANDS in interest. And interest is just the company making money off of you.
"All human beings are entrepreneurs. When we were in the caves, we were all self-employed ... finding our food, feeding ourselves. That's where human history began. As civilization came, we suppressed it. We became 'labor' because they stamped us, 'You are labor.' We forgot that we are entrepreneurs."
~ Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner and microfinance pioneer
Happy 4th of July! As we celebrate America’s independence, I thought it apropos to share a book I am reading that relates to gaining independence and control of one’s career: The Start-Up of YOU by Reid Hoffman, cofounder and chairman of LinkedIn, and Ben Casnocha.
This book isn’t about cover letters or resumes. Instead, it is best practices of Silicon Valley start-ups and how to apply these entrepreneurial strategies to your career.
A few years ago, September 8 was declared Henry Trione Day by the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors. For those who know Henry, they agree it is a well-deserved recognition. For those of us associated with Empire College, we are honored to have him as our founder 51 years ago and our avid supporter today.
