3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't started school yet but so far I have been provided with many options in what classes to take and which times to take them. This school has been very flexible.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: In my program, surgical technician, they assign a clinic to work at. Its hands on so we are able to get more out of our program. With that hands on experience I will be able to learn what its like to work in that field. Another big help in getting my degree was academic advisers. They are always there to answer any questions and they help in making your time there at school worth while. Overall, the school provides amazing service to students working towards a degree.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am going for surgical technology and it is a certificate program. The first semester we will be learning how to do our job and important information we will need while doing it. The second semester, the school provides a clinic that we go work at Monday-Friday to give us some experience. I really enjoy the way they put that together because I feel that's the best way to take the most out of it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I start this fall in attending SLCC and so far the academic advisers have helped me the most. College can be a bit hectic to enroll in but with the advisers help I have been able to have things run smoothly. It is affordable and you can go for just about anything there. I also enjoy how diverse it is because it shows a welcoming spirit. If I were to choose a school all over again, it would remain SLCC.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Pretty flexible classes for students like me who work.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: It's hard navigating, especially with subjects like math it's very hard to input things you need to, without telling you it's wrong.

2 College Senior

Career Services: Not very helpful in helping students know where to go and what to do once they are done.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The teachers so far have instructed very well, some can be very slow and boring, but some are very great because of how engaging, and how willing they are to work with you.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: If your program is offered, it's great. If it's not, it's a bit more difficult.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: For me considering my course of study isn't offered at SLCC, it's not to great knowing what classes I need. But I do know people in certain programs that are offered there, and they like it a lot.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: So far so good, the only frustrating thing is the academic advisors are NOT helpful at all! I've spoke to other students, and they say they don't work with them because they don't know enough to help. I've had teachers suggest talking to my future university advisors because I should get better help from them.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My school is unique because it provides many people the opportunity to receive a higher education. The school has many campuses throughout the Salt Lake Valley, making it easily accessible to the community at large. It is also affordable so people who are working low wages jobs, while working towards their career have are able to create a payment plan and attend college.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: From reviews from other students and alumni, I have learned that a Criminal Justice major can help me advance into a

pre-law major and to get a chance to attend law school in the future. The major is diverse and will allow me to learn about different aspects of criminal law, corrections, law, and even the progression of immigration reform.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Even though I haven't started my first semester at the college - I have gotten great recommendations from my sister who is an alumni and from friends about their positive experiences.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classes are somewhat flexible, but there is a great need for more night classes. Credits transferred fine for AP and Concurrent Enrollment.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Online courses are great for convenience, since they can be completed at almost any time, and few classes will require more than three tests to be done on campus instead of online. Workload is paced fine. The biggest problem is that students have less accountability in online classes, so they often drop them or forget until one or two weeks before the end of the semester, so they often get poor grades in them for this.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Transferring credits was fine, they took my passed AP exam and concurrent enrollment classes well, so I started with nine credit hours from my advanced high school classes. A common complaint is a lack of night classes which start after 5:00. They are rare. As such, many students have a hard time getting work that fits with their school schedule.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: For what is offered, it is overall good. As mentioned in a previous answer, professors that speak English well are becoming rarer and rarer, which can make difficult class very strenuous. Most professors use a lecture style of teaching, instead of Socratic or kinesthetic methods, due to ease and time constraints. Class sizes don't seem to go above 45 students, and online classes are good, but most students don't do well with them because there is less accountability.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I want to go into robotics, but that isn't really a degree offered in Utah, so for that skillset a hybrid degree must be made. I wish there was a degree for robotics. Employers on campus are only for sales or close to minimum wage paying jobs (it is a community college). General advisers are next to useless, but departmental advisers are quite helpful.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Again, since it is a community college, it often feels like it is out of touch with the real world. Frequently, the most competent professors are close to retiring and have been out of the industry, so they can't advise you as well about applications, only about theory. Also, the funding for school materials, especially in STEM is lacking. Also, academically, it often feels like teachers dumb things down too much, making a transition to a university more difficult. Material is often watered down to help people that don't speak English well to pass with a C, which is great for them, but how will I know if I have learned enough or not?

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At the Salt Lake Community College, it has many pros and some cons. The biggest benefit is much cheaper tuition. Also, class sizes are small, and professors are more approachable. The cons are that the professors are often out of touch with the industry, since a community college has a hard time attracting the best talent for the salary offered. Also, many professors tend to be difficult to understand because they are from foreign countries and their grasp of English varies tremendously.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: I got to try out a lot of new things.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: It helped me figure out my future a little more than before.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: I took classes during high school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I was able to take classes while still in high school.
