My boyfriend went to Empire College and majored in I.T. He told me to check out the college, and when I did, I knew that Empire was the school for me.

Thank you for inviting us to the college fair Wednesday. I’ve scheduled a few interviews with a few students and alumni, and I think I have a shot at getting them connected with local employers. It was a great event!
