is a month for crafty ghosts and ghouls, but the success of Capitol College's
students, staff and faculty is no trick! Treat yourself with a peek at some new
developments on campus in this month's issue of the Capitol Connector.
Each year, Capitol College advances; whether through public
outreach, volunteerism, supporting
students, or fostering partnerships. While we look ahead to the future, we
celebrate the accomplishments from the past year. This year, the fall issue of
the Capitol Chronicle is dedicated to
the 2008-2009 Annual Report. Inside this issue you'll find:
"The highlights you'll find in the
following pages are just examples of the great things we are doing, and
inspiration for what we can accomplish...it is our sincere hope that you find
this annual report useful, thought-inspiring, and most importantly motivating
as we keep Capitol moving forward." - Michael T. Wood, President, and John
G. Puente, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

|Gorgeous Prince George's Day
For the second
year in a row, Capitol College "dug in" to make the campus a greener place
by participating in the 7th annual Gorgeous Prince George's Day, a county-wide
initiative from County Executive Jack Johnson on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 on
the Capitol College campus. The focus of this
countywide event is to plant trees, shrubs and flowers in an effort to create
clean, healthy livable environments for county citizens. Through this
partnership, Capitol planted 20 crape myrtle trees and 100 spring flower bulbs.
Last year, through efforts from faculty, staff, and students, Capitol College
was awarded the Bronze Maryland PLANT award as a first year participant and has since been accepted as a member to the Maryland Green Registry. Thanks
to all students, faculty, staff and friends of the college who came out to make
this a successful event.
Capitol College will host the first ever DojoCon 2009 on November 6-7, 2009, a
conference focused on creating an environment where industry experts share
their knowledge with conference attendees in unparalleled fashion. This year's
theme is "The State of Information Security," and a slate of relevant panel
discussions is planned including relevant topics like incident response and
forensics, security compliance, and cloud computing. Notable speakers will
include Richard Bejtlich of General Electric, Ron Gula of Tenable Network
Security, Marcus J. Ranum of Tenable Network Security, Matt Watchinski of
Sourcefire VRT, and more. Organizer Marcus J. Carey '05 will donate $50 to Hackers for Charity for every
person that registers for the event, with a goal of 300 attendees and $15,000
raised. Learn more about this event at the DojoCon website.
