Meet Professor Jamy Klein
Professor Jamy Klein enjoyed earning his master's degree in information assurance so much that he decided he wanted to help other students further their careers as well.
Having taught at Capitol for the past three years, Klein knows that there is no better way to learn than by having an industry professional as an instructor.
"The one thing that really makes Capitol different is that nearly all of our IA instructors have worked in the IA career field," Klein says. "There is no substitute for experience!"
Senior Class Gift 2011 Dedication
On Tuesday Oct. 11, a number of alumni from the class of 2011 returned to Capitol for the dedication of their senior class gift, the Cyber Lounge.
The Cyber Lounge features comfortable furniture, a flat screen television and ample space for students to complete work or simply relax between classes. The wireless Internet on campus was also recently upgraded, thanks in part to the senior class gift.
The senior class gift committee for the Class of 2012 is forming now. Learn more about supporting Capitol.
