The Coleman University team certainly made waves at the 2016 International RoboSub Competition. Qualifying in their first year, the team had a strong finish but fell short of the finals. The event was covered by local media including the San Diego Union-Tribune: full story
Four teams from San Diego competed: Coleman University’s Electric and Networked Vehicle Institute; San Diego City College; San Diego State University’s Mechantronics Club; and San Diego Robotics 101 — made up of three seniors from local high schools.
Check back for our recap posted on the Coleman University Blog.
Scott Norton, Graphic Design Program Director at Coleman University, was live on CW6 News in the Morning today just steps away from Comic-Con.

Coleman University’s Associate of Science Graphic Design (ASGD) degree immerses students in the fundamentals of Graphic Design and applied visual communication. Graduates of this degree program will possess key skills that individual students may leverage into a wide variety of career paths in print and web media, advertising, content development, entertainment and art. This program emphasizes the commercial application of design and is designed specifically to accelerate the professional success of the designers who graduate.
On Friday, June 10, Coleman University staff gathered to clean up Ocean Beach, one of the most popular outdoor areas in San Diego. In partnership with San Diego Coastkeeper, CU obtained all the items needed to clear the beach with the Coastkeeper’s Beach Cleanup in a Box and got to work.
“At Coleman, we are always seeking out new opportunities to volunteer in the community,” said Dennis Young, Admissions Officer, Coleman, organizer of the event. “The cleanup provided a fun way for all of us to work together and help reduce pollution at the same time.”
In addition to removing the garbage, volunteers logged their “marine debris” findings on Coastkeeper’s data sheets. Marine debris is human-created trash and litter that either deliberately or accidentally makes its way to coastlines and beaches where it can eventually enter the ocean, bays, lakes or waterways. Plastic items such as bottles, lids or utensils to glass bottles, fishing lines, styrofoam, and metal are considered marine debris. 1
Having had a successful event, CU intends to plan future beach cleanup activities.

Each year, San Diego accountants meet for a one-day conference that covers topics ranging from financial concerns to regulations to fraud. Not all topics are directly related to the field, however. With the growing popularity of 3D printers for business and personal use, accountants wanted to know more about them and their applications.
“At Coleman University, students in the 3D Printing Club work with the latest in 3D printers, software and materials,” said Rod Weiss, director of business development, Coleman, and moderator of the presentation. Doug Mooney, graphics and media instructor, 3D Printing Club, Coleman University, served as co-moderator. AirWolf3D, Inc. provided the printer for the presentation.
“3D Printing: Changing the World, Both Business and Personal,” was presented by Caleb Boulio, Ryan Jones, Michael Stephens, Bradly Risse, Chase Thurmond, Matthew Magee, and Edna Rodriquez. The students explained the largest value propositions of 3D printing, best practices for purchasing and maintaining printers, dos and don’ts for purchasing a printer, and how this technology is impacting a variety of industries, such as medical, real estate, manufacturing, and fashion.
Businesses that are interested in learning more about 3D printing are welcome to attend a meeting of Coleman’s 3D Printing Club. Call 858-499-0202 for more information.
As a new or current student at Coleman you have by now come to realize that Webclass is one of the most important resources that you use. It is how you access your classes and submit your work to your instructor. Yet there’s more to it than that. Webclass is a valuable tool to learn how to use, but there’s a lot you don’t know. On April 26 at 12:00 PM, in room 244, Coleman will be hosting a workshop open to all students to come and learn about Weblcass. It is more than just paper submissions, you can access library resources, use an academic calendar to keep track of your due dates, research peer reviewed journals, and find writing resources for your classwork. If you’re interested please email Samantha Sanchez, the supervisor for the Tutoring Center. The names of the participants who sign up for, and attend, the workshop will be put into a raffle to win a gift certificate to Adrian’s Cafe at Coleman; there will be two prizes awarded!
(This will also be a good time to ask any questions that you may have about Webclass.)
