A warm welcome from the Phoenix Center
What PCA does and how they can help students
Welcome to campus, Auraria family! We at the Phoenix Center at Auraria | Anschutz are happy to see new and familiar faces on campus for another year filled with growth, success, and many new friends. The start of the year is always a special time on our campus, with new students and faculty, new relationships, new scholarships, and exciting conversations beginning anew after the summer months.
As a team, we are looking forward to educating and supporting the Auraria campus this coming school year. We are excited to work in collaboration with all of those who have a hand in educating our communities on issues of gender equity, transformative justice, and ending violence in all forms. Enjoy the first few weeks of classes, and remember to take time to pause, reflect, rekindle, renew, create memories, always get consent, and celebrate life. We look forward to meeting and joining efforts soon.
Along with a personal welcome back, we’d also like to orient you to the services we provide for you as a community member here at Auraria campus.
