GRACE K. DE LA TORRE, CP OF HEALDSBURG NAMED
CALIFORNIA’S PARALEGAL OF THE YEAR
Two-time Empire College graduate Antonia Garza's story is an inspiring example of the value of education.
Modern Business is a Storm is the theme of this year’s Administrative Professionals Week, April 21-27, at Empire College. The International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) Empire Student Chapter is celebrating by hosting exciting events during the week including workshops, educational seminars, networking opportunities,and a Dress for Success Day!
Cyber Crime: we read about it on the Internet every day. Sometimes, it seems like we read about it dozens of times a day:
One of the projects which Empire College highlighted in its application for the 2013 President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll, and which contributed to its recognition as a finalist, is the health initiatives of the Medical Assisting Department. Most recently, that outreach focused on volunteering for the American Heart Association to promote heart health awareness through free screenings in our community.
"Student Loan Debt exceeds credit card debt in the US"
The media is presenting these statistics in the wrong light.
When you use a credit card, you are spending money you do not have and must repay with interest and any other fees. Unless you are one of the few people who pays off their balance every month, credit card debt can be difficult to manage with interest rates on average at 15% (Check your monthly statements!).
It's not every day that a rubber chicken, the District Attorney, and a veteran share the stage at the Wells Fargo Center for the Arts. But that is exactly what occurred on Monday evening at the Empire College School of Business commencement exercises.
You may have noticed or seen a new person roaming around our halls at Empire College. Is he an instructor for another module? Well no, his background is in corporate and agency recruiting. He has worked for Robert Half International, Santa Rosa Community Health Centers and Goodwill Industries – San Francisco, San Mateo, Marin to name a few.
What is he doing at Empire College?
We know where the candidates stand. The question is: WHERE DO YOU STAND SONOMA COUNTY? IS IT WINE COUNTRY OR BEER COUNTRY?
Cast your vote tonight (6-8 pm) at the Sonoma County POTLUCK CHEF SHOWDOWN - ELECTION EDITION at Empire College. The $20 ticket price includes beer, wine, food sampling and ballot - 100% of proceeds benefit Social Advocates for Youth.
