For students who would like to experience an almost mini getaway, the Jordan Campus is a full service campus within only a few buildings, but offers wonderful views of the Wasatch range and spacious fields.
The High Technology Center (HTC) offers many amenities for students: a bookstore, a cafeteria, student services, a copy center, and plenty of areas for studying.
Hannah Kravel, a second-year student in the Medical Assistant program who works at the information and reception desk, is familiar with all the popular study spots.
“Near the cafeteria is often full of students and upstairs there are open area spots with seating and tables,” says Kravel.
Seated in one of the unique lounge sofas in the open area of the first floor was Clariss Chau, a second-year student at SLCC.
“This is actually my first time sitting here. It is comfortable. I like all the daylight and the view out,” says Chau.
The second floor of the HTC has a centrally located study areas with more lounge-like seating and tables.
“I like studying here because it is a quiet campus. This study area is close to my classroom,” says Basma Alkarkhi, a third-year student in the Pharmacy Technician program.
For Clariss Chau, the Health Sciences Building at Jordan offers her favorite study spots.
“I like the private study rooms in the library,” says Chau. “Also the Atrium; there is in the corner of the Atrium on the third level a table I like.”
This table is popular, seating for four, but from its quiet position, it boasts a unique vantage point view overlooking the three-story high Atrium space.
“Of course, the library has a great view of the mountains,” says LeeAnn Richardson, one of the library circulation staff members who has worked at Jordan for a number of years. “But the private study rooms are also very popular. There are two inside the library and two just outside the library entrance.”
Jordan’s campus is also home to the Student Pavilion, which has outdoor terraced seating for assembly presentations, lectures, or music.
