Questions & Answers

Who are the notable alumni?
1 Answer
  • SLCC students know how to work hard and stay busy. They often work full time toward a career or personal goal while completing their degrees. For McRae Williams, that goal was to be the best at competitive skiing. In 2013, Williams won a gold medal for slopestyle skiing in the X Games as a current student. Likewise, Eddie Alvarez enrolled at SLCC while he was training for the Olympics. He helped the U.S. Speedskating team win a silver medal in the 2014 winter Olympics. Shortly after, he landed a position with the Chicago White Sox. And this was all after he overcame double knee surgery. Gerald Narciso wrote for SLCC’s The Globe and The Salt Lake Tribune while working on his communication degree. His hard work paid off; Narciso now writes for nationally known news outlets like The New York Times and has interviewed stars like Tony Hawk and Pharrell Williams. Angela H. Brown pumps out news stories for and about the Salt Lake City community. She has served as the editor of SLUG Magazine (which stands for Salt Lake UnderGround) for more than a decade. By the way, you should check out SLUG Magazine before moving to Salt Lake City for college. It’s your go-to guide to adopting the SLC lifestyle. You can get details on the next Eat Drink SLC festival, roller derby bout, or urban flea market. Or you can find out when the next Craft Lake City DIY festival will be held, an organization and event Brown launched in 2009. Before you know it you’ll be a full-fledged Salt Lake city slicker thanks to your fellow SLCC alum.

What is the campus setting like?
1 Answer
  • Salt Lake City: a place where skyscrapers and mountains stand together tall and proud. SLCC and its hometown appeal to city lovers and nature enthusiasts alike. SLCC’s online platform and 10 campuses throughout Salt Lake Valley serve 60,000 students. So, it’s safe to say you’ll have your pick of friends, locations, and course formats. The Student Center and Lifetime Activity Center are housed at Taylorville Redwood Campus, the main campus location. It’s 15 minutes away from downtown Salt Lake City—close enough away to find things to do, far enough away to keep distractions at arm’s length! The faculty and staff will also encourage you to get out into the community, too. At the Thayne Center for Service & Learning you can sign up for service learning courses, alternative spring breaks, and volunteer projects. Students plant flowers to beautify campus and harvest fruit to feed the community. SLCC continues to better its campus environment for the benefit of future students like you. In 2015, the new West Valley City campus opened to offer people in the surrounding area closer learning opportunities. And, in 2013, the South City Campus celebrated the grand opening of the Center for Arts and Media. This new building is awe-inspiring. The same firm that has completed projects for Warner Brothers, Paramount, and Lucasfilm designed the Center’s acoustic facilities such as the digital recording studio. Simply put, this facility is nothing short of top notch. Close to the city, nestled in a beautiful valley, and resources students at four-year colleges would envy? That’s SLCC in summary.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
1 Answer
  • If you’re thinking about taking classes online through SLCC, you’re in good company. Each year around 10,000 students near and far from Salt Lake City do the same. From human biology to engineering thermodynamics, you can earn credit toward a degree by taking courses relevant to just about any field. SLCC states on their website that fully online programs are in the works; stay tuned. Through the Continuing Education office students can also enroll in online career and skills trainings. For starters, you could take a refresher in anatomy and physiology or learn the essentials of real estate law. Anyone can check out program areas and course offerings here. A $99 course investment just might lead you to down the path to a lifetime of wealth and wisdom.

What are the athletic highlights?
1 Answer
  • Want to be a Bruin? You can try out for volleyball, basketball, softball, or baseball at SLCC. Bruins soccer is making its debut in 2016. Each team has celebrated multiple conference championships over the past 20 years. And in 2009, men’s basketball brought SLCC its first national title. The softball team has come in second in the nation for three years in a row, so they’ve had a taste of their own national success. A national win is within reach. Being a Bruin however, is about more than being a big time athlete. Off the court, around 40 student-athletes participate in the Know Your Heroes program. They visit more than 30 local elementary schools each year and teach kids about how live healthy lifestyles. The program is an effort to impact childhood obesity, and in turn, reduce our next generation’s chances of developing serious health conditions. Join the Bruins and you’ll boost your athletic abilities as well as your leadership skills. If serious competition isn’t your style, you can still get active and have fun by participating in athletic clubs. Climb, cycle, and dance your body to health in your own Bruin way.

What are the school's academic highlights?
1 Answer
  • At SLCC you can earn a traditional associate’s degree, which is a great way to fulfill general education requirements as an aspiring transfer student. Or, if you’d like to launch your career without immediately transferring into a bachelor’s program, consider an apprenticeship. SLCC’s apprenticeships are career preparation programs that require on-the-job training along with traditional coursework. Apprentices learn by working with SLCC’s sponsored industry partners. For example, students in the Brick Mason Technology program work in the field for 6,000 hours building structures such as stone fireplaces and brick chimneys. In doing so, they build foundations for successful careers in the hands-on field of masonry. Apprenticeships are also offered in plumbing, landscaping, carpentry, stagehand work (as in show and movie production), and more than 10 other areas. In 2015, SLCC began offering over 90 condensed general education courses that run for the second half of the semester. This means students whose lives don’t run according to the traditional 15-week class schedule still have opportunities to get started and graduate on time. Spring, summer, fall, or sometime in the middle, it’s always a convenient time to enroll.
