Hello everyone! My name is Ariel Pitzer, and I am a proud alumni of CSU Pueblo. I was born and raised in Delta Junction, Alaska, but I have lived in Colorado for over ten years and consider this state my home. I am a horse girl for life and a die-hard Yankees fan! I love Mexican food (especially Pueblo Green Chili), playing volleyball, watching the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, and country music.


I chose CSU Pueblo because of the location and affordabilityI live in Pueblo County so driving to campus every day was no big deal. Also, I was able to graduate debt-free because of the reasonable costs to attend CSU Pueblo and opportunities for scholarships/financial aid. As a full-time student here, I enjoyed doing work-study in the office of Student Engagement and Leadership (SEAL) and playing club volleyball!
