Rachel - 05/07/2024

It's a hit or miss with some of the teachers, some will go above and beyond for you while others are just in it for the money. There's fun activities held during the semesters to attend, but usually it's better to have another fellow friend who is attending the college too, to go with. Otherwise, it gets awkward. If you want to pursue further in your education, it is nice that tuition is cheaper here for your first two years before you go to a 4 year college for a bachelor's degree and up.

Elizabeth - 04/10/2024

I think this school serves it great purpose as an easily accessible and affordable secondary educational institution. They always have great food and extracurricular activities on campus. The small class sizes allow for better one-on-one time with teachers and a richer learning experience. The times and options are very flexible for full-time working students and those who needs a broader range of educational opportunities.

Georgia - 03/16/2024

The school is a good way to be able to create new connections but it does not 100% allow for students to be very active since it is a community college. While teachers can be engaging, it can be hard to get in touch with others from your class due to the varying ages and the fact that not many students go to just one campus but multiple campuses.

Morgan - 11/17/2023

I like Salt Lake Community College. It’s a community college so the social and community aspects aren’t as high, but the facilities are really nice and the classes and professors are great. There’s limited food options, but there is still something available. The library is great, and there are plenty resources like the writing and reading center. There’s always someone there to give you support and help. I enjoy walking around campus, it’s really well-kept and a nice place to be.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Going back to talk to myself as a high school senior would be a bittersweet chance for me. There's no guarantee that I would even listen to myself. How hard headed I must have been to know I wouldn't even listen to myself. I imagine the high school me would be laying on the bed, ear phones in my ears, volume turned up to the max, homework sitting by my side untouched, and my phone right in my hand texting away. I would walk in and tell my highschool self to go to school! I would ask myself the question that I ask myself this very day, Why don't you go to class? What's wrong with your classes? Senior year is the most important year in high school and I know you don't want to go believe me I can feel how you feel. Just go, it saves us so much trouble at the end of year. And maybe you will actually be able to enjoy your summer instead of doing make up packets. College is so much better than high school, trust me, we LOVE it. So please just try, for us.

    I wish I had begun the process to qualify for tuition wavers from the begining. I attended this school 10 years prior and had to drop out due to work conflicts. Now that I have started up again, those incomplete grades have caused my GPA to be lower and I am having to go through an extensive appeal process. I wish I had known how much those grades would effect my ability to pay for school.

  10. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    Nationally, I couldn't tell you, although our Men's Basketball team players were the NJCAA champs in 2009, so that may be recognizable. For me personally, however, SLCC was a great opportunity for me to further my education in a cost-efficient manner that is close to my home and works comfortably around my family life.
