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
Student GroupWelcome Class 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.
GIJOBS Logo Military Friendly School
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.
