Glendale Campus Remodel

Categories: Uncategorized

Over the last few months, Arizona College has been in the process of remodeling our Glendale campus.  We have been in this location over ten years and it’s nice to freshen up the look and feel of the campus, based on the design of the Mesa campus. We updated all of our labs, expanded the student lounge, added classroom space, and created better areas for students and staff to work. The main lobby has new stainless steel and glass doors and has been completely opened up, resulting in more light and open space!  We also moved our faculty, student services, and career services into one area to better serve our students and facilitate work among our staff. At the very least, each room got a fresh coat of paint and new floors – many rooms got much more.  It was a lot of work on everyone’s part, and a little…

Arizona College Christmas Angel Tree

Categories: Uncategorized

It’s official; the Holiday Season is here!  Can you believe that Christmas is only 3 weeks away?!  In keeping with Arizona College tradition, our lovely blue and silver Arizona College Christmas Angel Tree is currently displayed in the front lobby. Our Christmas Angel Tree is similar to the Angel Trees you see at the malls, however, the items donated are actually for our students and their family!  These needs were based upon individual nominations within the student body. The tree has Arizona College ornaments displayed; on the back of each ornament, a simple item is listed.  These donations will help provide presents for their children and loved ones.  What an amazing gift! If you would like to help a fellow student and family this holiday season, you can purchase the item listed, and return the UNWRAPPED item along with the ornament tag to Ms. Vanslyke by December 17th, 2013.  Thank…
