As a transfer student and the first person in my family to go to college, CU Denver helped me meet my moment.

Andrea's Moment

As a first-generation college student, Andrea A. knew that investing in her future with a degree at CU Denver would change her life. And it did by providing her with flexible learning options so she could juggle becoming a mom, holding a job, and taking classes, while increasing her lifelong financial stability. More than two decades after the moment she received her diploma, Andrea is still making an impact as a public servant in the city she calls home.  

I grew up watching two powerful women, my mother and grandmother, break through barriers and make a difference. Thanks to CU Denver, I launched a career that lets me continue that legacy. 

Transferring in

Like many CU Denver students, Andrea started earning college credits at another institution before transferring to CU Denver. “I transferred to CU Denver because they believe that education works for all,” she said. “Their flexible learning options let me work, start a family, and begin my career—all while earning my degree.”
