Meet Sharon Bowers. Bowers is a Rio Salado College student who is taking advantage of what the Communiversity at Queen Creek has to offer.

Bowers recently made the decision to return to school and complete her undergraduate degree. She emphasized how helpful it is to have a higher-education location within her community.

“I’ve been coming to the Communiversity to do my online school work and to get help. It’s been a blessing,” said Bowers. “I take advantage of the location and its hours. I can come in before work or after work, it's very convenient.”

Bowers is currently taking advantage Rio Salado’s online courses to meet general education requirements. She will complete her associate degree and plans to transfer to Arizona State University.

“Because I’ve been out of school for several years, I want to take my core classes in-person and have that interaction with an instructor,” said Bowers.

Bowers explained how friendly and helpful the staff has been. She frequently reserves study rooms and uses the space to work on projects or prep for exams.

"It's important to have a quiet, clean space for homework. Coming here allows me the chance to shut everything else off and just focus on the task at hand," said Bowers.

The Communiversity offers a variety of in-person seminars and classes. Call on one of our student services specialists to learn how we can serve you. Give us a ring at 480-384-9000 or drop us a line at  CommuniversityQC@riosalado.edu to schedule a tour and meet.
