Capitol Connector


October 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.
Student GroupAnnual Report
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:
  • Letter from the President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees
  • The Year in Review
  • Statement of Financial Position and Activities
  • Honor Roll of Benefactors
"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
GPG 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.
DojoCon 2009
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.
