On March 25 and 26, 2015, during the spring semester, Estrella Mountain Community College held its third annual Student Success Fair, an open house fair that is free to students and the public. The fair was conceived in the hopes that it would promote student success here on campus and beyond, such as at a university or on the student’s career path. This was the third year that EMCC hosted the fair, and students raved that this was the best one yet. Not only was it entertaining and helpful to those students who needed it, but it also had a large impact on them as well.

One student who got to perform a story was Mariesa Rojas. Rojas told a story entitled “Angelita and the Giants,” which is like Snow White but is a Brazilian tale.

On February 2014, Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC) participated in the global “One Billion Rising” dance campaign to raise awareness and to end violence against women and young girls.
The “One Billion Rising” campaign created a choreographed dance to “break the chain.” The purpose of the dance is for women to figuratively “break off the chain” their abuser has on them.
Worldwide, violence against women happens often. One of the event coordinators, Dr. Sandy Zetlan stated, “One out of three women in the world are beaten or raped one time in their life.”
