SUMMER

It's summer time for the college. for some of you, that means no class or studying. For the rest of us . use the time for improving skill and take extra class or two to finish our degrees. I recommend you seek out knowledge , Find those Flags,  lock down your box and laugh at the challenges coming up this fall for the cyber Security Club. I'll be working on some events and finding some good resources for the club.    Hack responsibly,   Javier Flores (Javi) 

Holiday Closure

Online resources are available 24/7 at madisoncollege.edu via askMadisonCollege. Check the Department Directory to verify service hours by individual department.

Complete your Foreign Language Requirement

If you wait until you transfer to a 4-year university to knock that requirement out, you’ll end up shelling out a heap of cash. Why pay more? In addition, our World Languages instructors enjoy working with students one-on-one.    We offer Spanish, French, Mandarin Chinese and Arabic. Take our classes and your resume and your future “I-can-earn-more-money-speaking-two-languages” self will thank you for it.
