ESTRELLA MOUNTAIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Estrella Mountain Community College, located at 3000 North Dysart Road in Avondale, Arizona, was established in 1992 and is the newest of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges. With community input and adherence to sustainability, the campus was created to be a proud exhibit of contemporary architecture among a responsibly planned desert landscape that enhances the campus beauty.
