There was once a high school on State Street called South High. From 1931 to 1988, the halls were filled with teenagers going to and from classes – hoping for a bright future. Some may have dreamed of attending college. That dream soon developed into reality, when Salt Lake Community College became the new inhabitant of the South High building.
For years, college students attended the old high school and took pride in its rich history. I once met a man who attended South High during his high school years. He related his experiences to me and was amazed at how quickly things change.
Change is a very good thing, despite the yearning we have to keep things the way they are. This fall semester, South City Campus opened its doors to a newly renovated section of the historic South High building. Constructed for the Arts and Communication departments, the new section has provided for them a place of their own.
With new computer labs, sound editing booths and state-of-the-art classrooms, South City Campus has evolved into a multi-media frenzy. Walk by The Globe’s new and improved newsroom to observe the staff in their weekly meeting. Please don’t be shy! There is so much to explore in the new section of South City Campus.
The fact is, change is inevitable and a natural part of life. Embrace, explore and devour it. Without change, life would not have flavor. The new South City is here, so take the reins, and utilize all it has to offer.
