Student Life Centers:

We have student life located on all three campuses. Each student life area offers multiple activities and locations for students to connect. Come visit us and experience PPCC's Student Life.

Centennial Student Life Location and Hangouts

The Grove

The Grove, Room A-207, is our Commons area at our main Centennial campus. It features free Wi-Fi, pool tables, comfortable furniture, a big screen plasma TV, cool art, and more. Check out the recliners for a quick nap between classes. Pull up to the window counter with your laptop and log on. Gather around a large table for a quick bite or study group. In the Grove you can meet students, find friends, and hang out. It’s so great, we actually have to remind you to go to class!

So what’s up with that name? It’s true, an aspen grove is a lovely place to gather. But it’s more than that. An aspen grove is the largest living interconnected organism in the world. Its defining characteristics are longevity, a hardy nature and interconnectedness. The Grove in the Student Life Center is so named, first, because of its location in the Aspen Building, but more-so because it reflects the Student Life mission of building community by focusing on the interconnectedness of the campus community.

The Playground

The Playground, outdoors off the Grove. This is an outdoor gathering spot on campus. It features picnic tables, goofy orange chairs that you can move around to form cluster seating, Wi-Fi, shade sails and a new solar operated table that has outlets for you to charge your electronics while you relax in the shade.
