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.

One of the things that I appreciate about going to Empire College was that the training was so hands-on.

Walking across the graduation stage already employed with a full-time job was very gratifying.

I had a lot of friends go through Empire who had a great experience. If you want a solid IT foundation to get out in the workforce, it’s the place to be.
