It’s hard to accept just how divided we are as a nation when the United States is built upon diversity and acceptance.
We are a country of many cultures and that’s part of the reason this is such a beautiful nation.
Salt Lake Community College is one of the best examples of diversity, as it offers many opportunities to expand our cultural horizons.
I am personally expanding my views to the East, as I pursue a minor in Japanese. SLCC offers language courses, cultural classes and even a study abroad program.
More than that, SLCC’s study abroad programs give students the opportunity to experience England and China.
Diversity courses, which are required to graduate from SLCC, range from film and LGTB studies to Native American and Hispanic courses.
Extracurricular clubs like Latinos in Action and the Asian Student Association, provide students with multicultural enrichment.
I don’t mean to sound like an advert for SLCC, but that is one of the aspects that I personally love about attending this school. It is a place that welcomes many people of different backgrounds and cultures.
Let’s always remember that we are a melting pot and are continually adding to our multicultural soup.
