Columbia College-Denver celebrates new location in Centennial, Colo.
Columbia College-Denver has a new home – 730 miles west of Main Campus and one mile higher. Sitting at 5,830 feet, Columbia College-Denver has relocated from Aurora to the Denver Tech Center in Centennial, Colo., just south of the Mile High City.
The move allows Columbia College-Denver to serve military and civilian adult learners in the Denver area. “We are proud to re-invest in the Denver community,” says Director Andye Wolff-Yakubovich. “Our new location in the Denver Tech Center allows us to provide state-of-the-art technology and additional educational resources to our students, which will better equip them to pursue today’s top jobs.”
Columbia College president Dr. Gerald Brouder provided remarks at a ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 28 along with Wolff-Yakubovich and John Brackney, president of the South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce.
Given the strong online presence of Columbia College, the college offered an online class demonstration at the conclusion of the ceremony.
The campus opened its doors at 6892 S. Yosemite Ct. after 33 years in nearby Aurora, where it served active-duty military personnel at Lowry Air Force Base, Fitzsimmons Army Medical Center, retired military and corporate students from major companies in the area.
