Overall, I had a good experience with Salt Lake Community College. The campus was constantly bustling with friendly faculty and students! I really enjoyed several perks, like the free gym membership that came with being a student.
Although SLCC has many great perks, there are also some changes I would like to see incorporated. The advisors are kind, but they advise you take classes that you don't particularly need. Both my friend and I were applying for the nursing program and ended up taking more classes than per the requirements. As new moms, we don't have extra time and finances to spend on yoga classes when we are trying to become medical professionals. We would like to spend more time living our dreams, supporting our families, and giving back to our community.

Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) is a good school for a great price. As a student, I've taken classes in topics I struggle in and I've learned a lot of information that I both use and retain to this day!

It's more cost efficient than most schools, yet it doesn't 'cheapen' the learning experience. All of the campuses are clean, easy to navigate, and 'comfortable' vibe.

SLCC offers many resources that are helpful but at times can be convoluted, so watch out for that. Also, textbook prices for some courses may be a little egregious- watch out for those too.

Otherwise, great school!
The teachers truly care about the students and the school encourages creativity! I love being a student here. I have been entirely impressed by the quality of education I receive at community college. There are obviously things that could be improved, but the education is quality-which is most important in my books. I feel that some of my art classes at SLCC are better than classes I took at a State University.
