Cochise College opened its doors 50 years ago to an enthusiastic student body that continues to inspire today.
Much has changed since 1964, but Cochise College’s student-centered focus is not one of them. Alumni have described their Cochise College experience as “the perfect transition” and a “lifesaver.” The college’s first students were in awe of the faculty, that a group of talented teachers could be assembled in such an unlikely locale. After all it took to open the college, everyone wanted to see students succeed.
That passion holds true today. At Cochise, you’ll find academic and career guidance around nearly every corner. Faculty recruited from across the nation help you master skills for advanced degrees and the workplace. Staff point you in the right direction for everything from financial counseling and library services to social activities and resume-enhancing volunteer opportunities.
After half a century, I’m proud to say that Cochise College remains big enough to explore and small enough to care. Despite having bestowed more than 30,000 degrees and certificates, we still enjoy getting to know our students by name.
Choosing a college is an important decision. If finding a school where individuals matter and dreams are realized is important to you, you’ve come to the right place.
Welcome to Cochise College!
