ESL Academy

Erika Wiggins


​​​I was born in Russia and moved with my family to Germany when I was 6 years old. My passion for traveling brought me to Colorado in 2008.  I earned my Associates of Arts at the Arapahoe Community College in Littleton.  This is also where I first interacted with international students.  Ever since, I cannot imagine doing anything else but to help those students get accustomed to the American school system. My job at the ESL Academy is to assist with admissions, activities and many other things.  I am also the liaison for other departments at the University, such as the Bursar's or Registrar's Office. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family. We like to take walks with our two dogs or just hang out at home. Other interests include really good food, meaningful movies (Drama, Documentary), and captivating books.​

"My favorite thing about my job is that I often run into students on campus long after they graduated. It is nice to see that our efforts for creating a seamless transition to degree programs at CU Denver become reality. We work closely with the team at International Admissions, which means that we solve many things with a simple phone call. We like to keep things personal; here, you are not just a number but a real person ."
