Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the Phoenix College Alumni Association (PCAA). Start by updating your contact information to ensure you receive alumni news. Then consider:


Attending an alumni mixer

The Phoenix College Alumni Association (PCAA) hosts alumni mixers each semester. These mixers are a great opportunity to network with other alumni and a great way to provide input to the Alumni Association. Join us to connect with other alumni, and help the PCAA! To learn more, contact alumni@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7652.


Mentoring a student

You can make a positive impact on a student’s life by becoming a mentor. Be a Career Mentor or a Bear Scholarship Mentor.

  • Career Mentors sign up with the PCAA under their career description. Students considering a major or career can then contact the Office of Alumni & Development or Career Services and request to contact an alumnus/a in a particular career field. Alumni can choose how and when they prefer to be contacted. Please contact the alumni coordinator at alumni@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7652 to enroll.

  • As part of PCAA’s Bear Scholarship Program, student recipients are matched with an alumni mentor. This is a formal mentoring relationship, which continues until the student graduates from Phoenix College. For a real-life example of this program, read the story of Carlos and Don.


Reviewing student scholarship applications

Reading student scholarship applications is a rewarding way to be connected to current PC students — and can be done from the comfort of your own computer. Our online scholarship management tool lets you easily review student scholarship applications using a provided grading rubric. Scholarship review occurs twice each year, in the fall and spring. Please contact the alumni coordinator at alumni@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7652 to learn more.


Supporting student success by donating to scholarships

More than 84 percent of full-time PC students need financial aid to pursue their education. And students report that getting a scholarship validates their hard work and reassures them of their goals. Your gift supporting student scholarships is tax-deductible and helps develop the next generation of community leaders. Donations may be made securely online, or by phone at 602-285-7667.


Sharing your story and accomplishments

Did you get a new job? Have you built a fantastic career after graduating from Phoenix College? Were you recently recognized for outstanding achievement in your job field or as a volunteer for an organization? Share your great news with us. Many stories are published on our blog, in our e-newsletter, and our print newsletter. Your story could be next!


Volunteering at PCAA-sponsored events

The PCAA hosts alumni events throughout the year including Homecoming Fall Festival, New Student Orientations, Half-Century Luncheons, and Alumni Mixers. By volunteering at alumni events, you can meet and network with fellow PC graduates. It’s also a great way to meet new friends and reconnect with former classmates. To learn more, visit the Alumni Events page, or contact alumni@phoenixcollege.edu or 602-285-7652 for more information.
