Capitol College welcomes students back to campus and
classrooms! This issue of the Capitol Connector says farewell to summer and highlights new programs, upcoming events
this semester, and opportunities to support the college.
|New Student Orientation
of 2013! This year's incoming freshmen were welcomed to campus at New Student
Orientation, held August 19-21, 2009. During their first days at college,
students settled into their dorm rooms, registered for classes, participated in
ice breakers and picnics, and got to know the members of the Student Life
staff. Members of the faculty and college staff assisted in guiding students on computer services, the MyCapitol
portal, drugs and alcohol awareness, and financial aid.
Capitol College was recently named a military friendly
school by G.I. Jobs magazine,
announced by the release of the publication's 2010 list of Military Friendly Schools. The list honors the top 15 percent of
colleges, universities and higher education institutions which are doing the
most to embrace America's
veterans as students. Originating as a radio engineering institute offering
courses for Navy personnel in 1927, Capitol
College has a long, proud
history of educating active and former members of the armed forces. Participating
in the Yellow Ribbon Program and Montgomery GI Bill are just two examples of the many
ways Capitol is military-friendly.
Information Assurance Programs
Capitol's Critical Infrastructures and Cyber Protection Center offers a series of programs that present training and
professional development opportunities for the information assurance
workforce. All CICPC classes are taught completely online and geared
towards the working professional, so students can enroll and participate
worldwide. Information about programs and a schedule of classes are available on the CICPC website.
