Connect with University of Phoenix on social media
You may be mostly online, but that doesn't mean Phoenixes are alone. Say hello to Paula Hutchinson, an entrepreneur, speaker and President of the alumni chapter in Phoenix, Arizona. The university has an alumni network of more than 1 million graduates across the country. Paula Hutchinson is one of them. Let's see how she supports other phoenixes in their goals. Paula. Thanks, Alex. I am proud to be a University of Phoenix alumni. My advisor had me hooked from our first conversation and she helped me through my degrees and through life changes ranging from sickness to family deaths to moving to Phoenix. Growing up, I saw how my mother and grandmother worked hard so I could have the education. They didn't. I understood early on that a college degree offered a chance at a better life as a alumni center chapter president. I see the same determination as so many other Phoenix's who have made their educational dreams a reality. The University of Phoenix provided a pathway to education and opportunity for me. Now that I am able to return that favor as a president of the university's alumni chapter in Phoenix, where we have over a thousand members, it is important to me to serve as a major contributor to the alumni community, whether it's by coordinating webinars with career advice, creating networking opportunities, or simply cheering on other alumni who choose to earn another degree, which is what I'm doing, by the way. I'm in the doctoral program now at University of Phoenix. The alumni community is all about building professional and personal relationships that go the distance and defy geographical distance. We share skills, contacts, advice and opportunities. We help each other navigate life's challenges. There is so much pride in this new alumni community of professionals across the country. The university truly taught me to be a Phoenix and rise from the ashes. I have already accomplished so much as an entrepreneur and educator. Now, as I work toward completing my doctoral of Education program, I look forward to champion for equitable education. That's my story. Back to you. Alex. Thanks, Paula. What an amazing way to stay connected after graduation. Joining one of you is 50 alumni chapters offers plenty of benefits from potential professional networking to quarterly social events to growing your leadership skills. And that's not all you will. Alumni can also join the exclusive Phoenix Link Network, which is like an amplified career directory, and take advantage of tuition discounts and networking opportunities. Talk about community support. Take care.


Online, but never alone

Devon had access to a vast community of support — from academic counselors and faculty to fellow students and a network of 50 alumni chapters nationwide. As a Phoenix, you can too.


“The classes in the online community let me meet people from all walks of life who are in various stages of their careers.”
