Your Life as a Phoenix

What does it mean to be a Phoenix? We are the risers. The ones who know that if we want it, we have to go out and get it. We give blood, sweat, and sometimes tears. We are sculpted by adversity. We are made from desire and a dream, but we leave nothing up to fate. We have the skill, and we have the will. And we will not let ourselves be ignored.

Still I Rise – Gail Marquis

Still I Rise - Gail Marquis - University of Phoenix Commercial

Gail Marquis scratched and clawed her way to greatness. She wasn’t born with success, she earned it. Gail Marquis is a proud, determined University of Phoenix graduate.
(city noise)
Honey! Get in here!
Gail, look at this.
(cheering on TV)
YES!
You may write me down in history, with your bitter, twisted lies.
You may trod me in the very dirt, but still like dust, I rise.
Gail Marquis... ok, you got it. No problem.
Just like suns and like moons, with the certainty of tides.
Just like hopes springing high, still I rise.
You may shoot me with your words... you may cut me with your eyes... you may kill me with your hatefulness.
But still, like air... we rise.

Peek behind the classroom scenes

See our new online classroom

00:00:05 This is my new University of Phoenix classroom.
00:00:08 It has everything I need to be a more successful student, including giving me more ways to learn and more ways to connect with my instructor and classmates.
00:00:17 For example, on my home page, I can see this week's assignments and learning activities, the latest news from my instructor, and updates from class discussions.
00:00:27 The syllabus helps me stay organized and on top of my assignments.
00:00:31 It tracks my progress through the course.
00:00:33 I can check week by week and look ahead to see what's coming.
00:00:37 It's easy to check out my assignments.
00:00:39 I can view instructions, submit files, and get up-to-the-minute feedback from my instructor.
00:00:44 I can even locate helpful resources.
00:00:47 I can pick my own way to learn because the new classroom has a lot of different interactive learning activities, like this video, which I can play right in the classroom.
00:00:57 The class roster helps me stay in touch with my classmates.
00:01:00 It tells me right away who my classmates are, if they are online, and how I can reach them.
00:01:06 My chat tool lets me work with my classmates and my learning team without leaving the classroom, and I can even chat with my entire class through the group chat feature.
00:01:15 Since my calendar is synced to my syllabus, I always know when assignments or activities are due.
00:01:22 The new classroom even has a great mobile app that lets me study and stay in touch with my instructor and classmates.
00:01:28 Here's to doing schoolwork anytime, anywhere.
00:01:32 The new University of Phoenix classroom.
00:01:34 It's a place to discover, connect, and achieve.

One university. Infinite ways to rise.

Student Stories: Candace Sánchez

00:00:03 My model is dream big.
00:00:05 Dream big; you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.
00:00:08 My name is Candace Sanchez, Director of Information Services.
00:00:11 I went to college as a traditional student.
00:00:14 That didn’t really work out too well.
00:00:17 Just trying to be a single mother of two daughters, I just needed to get a job and provide for my family.
00:00:30 If I ever wanted to apply for a leadership role, I needed to have a bachelor’s degree.
00:00:35 I heard about University of Phoenix from a friend.
00:00:38 I enrolled, and, pretty much, it’s changed my life.
00:00:41 I was able to relate the IT courses from work to school and school to work.
00:00:46 I learned time management.
00:00:47 I learned critical thinking, project management.
00:00:52 I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Information Technology, and I have a Master’s of Business Administration.
00:00:58 I remember putting on the cap and gown and just knowing that I’ve accomplished my goal, that I’ve earned this degree, and now I can provide for my family.
00:01:06 I am most proud of creating a better life for them.
00:01:10 I just felt I could never preach college to my daughters unless I went to college myself.
00:01:15 I wanted to be a role model for them.
00:01:20 I’ve been able to develop personally and professionally, being a woman, being Latina, and being in IT.
00:01:28 That is a trifecta.

Congratulations Larry Fitzgerald
