I’ve said before on my blogs that education is important. If you are not in a position to get to a brick and mortar campus, don’t be afraid to check out cyber-courses like those offered by Capella. You can earn actual university degrees online, right from home.

Capella was in the news recently, when Tammy Alexander was awarded the 2006 FBI Director’s Community Leadership Award. She a master’s degree student at Capella and was honored for her work in cybersecurity. The award is given to recognize the achievements of individuals and organizations who are actively involved in community crime prevention, and is given annually to one individual or organization from each of the FBI’s 56 field offices.
