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.”

There are a variety of scholarships available to Empire College students and, while the process of applying can be demanding, those who persevere frequently see their efforts pay off.
Javier Ortiz was recently a guest speaker for the Empire College I.T. Department. Javier is a graduate of Empire who now has a job as a Help Desk Assistant at Redwood Toxicology in Santa Rosa. Javier came to Empire College straight out of high school and graduated in the I.T. security program. Javier stressed that there is a big learning curve on the job and that his classes here at Empire College helped prepare him tremendously, especially the concepts in computer hardware and Network+ classes. One of the biggest challenges of his job is dealing with people.
