Students at Salt Lake Community College have options — right down to which campus they decide to take their classes.
SLCC has 10 campuses in the Salt Lake Valley, most of which are the exclusive home of specific programs.
“The great thing about having campuses with specific classes, means that I get to only be with people that are studying the same thing I am,” says interior design student Leslie Campbell.
While SLCC students can learn just about anything they want, not all students like program-specific campuses.
“I live in North Salt Lake, and I have to travel very far to get to class,” says culinary student Jason Tigg. “Most of my classes are at the Miller Campus which means it can take over an hour to get to class when traffic is bad.”
Want to learn more about what is taught at each SLCC campus? Here is a brief rundown of the 10 campuses and what you can find at each one.
Taylorsville Redwood Campus
Taylorsville Redwood is the largest of all the campuses, and includes a student center, a library, a health and fitness center, and a green administration building.
The new admin building is also home to the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. Other programs that operate out of Taylorsville Redwood include the School of Business and the School of Science, Mathematics & Engineering.
South City Campus
South City Campus was originally South High School but was later remodeled for SLCC. The campus offers many of the same services as Taylorsville Redwood, including a campus bookstore and Student Life and Leadership office.
Many general education courses are taught at South City but the crown jewel is the Center for Arts and Media (CAM).
The CAM, which opened in 2013, is the school’s state-of-the-art digital art center. The CAM features a 36-seat film screening room, a 2,000-square-foot television production studio and a popular student radio station.
The Jordan Campus features everything a student needs to be successful, including a testing center, advising offices and financial aid offices.
Jordan Campus also contains the School of Health Sciences, which offers many medical programs. Students can go to Jordan Campus for affordable dental care at the school’s dental outpatient clinic.
For students interested in planes and aviation, the International Aerospace/Aviation Education Center is home to SLCC’s aviation technology program. Students can also specifically learn about becoming an aviation maintenance technician.
Donated by the late Larry H. Miller, the Miller Campus is SLCC’s southernmost campus. The SLCC Culinary Institute operates out of the Miller Campus.
In addition to several continuing education courses, the Miller Campus also boasts two business centers to help both corporations and startup companies succeed.
The Miller Campus also hosts Highway Patrol training and the Department of Corrections training academy.
For students looking for more vocational programs, or the School of Applied Technology, Meadowbrook Campus offers both.
Meadowbrook offers many hands-on courses. Programs like professional truck driving, HVAC and diesel systems technology are just a few programs offered at Meadowbrook.
Library Square Center
Located near the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, the Library Square Center sits directly across from the Salt Lake City Public Library.
The Library Square Center hosts SLCC’s paralegal program with an extensive law library. Library Square also houses SLCC’s fashion and interior design programs.
For students to park at the Library Square Center, a student must purchase a Library Square permit. Students must be enrolled in classes at the center during that semester.
Community Writing Center
Across the street at the Salt Lake library, the Community Writing Center (CWC) offers resources to help the community improve their writing abilities.
The CWC offers several programs to assist all who need help with writing. Programs like writing workshops and writing coaching give community members personalized help with their writing.
Students who need help with their writing assignment should visit the Student Writing Centers located at the Taylorsville Redwood, South City, Jordan and Library Square campuses.
SLCC’s northernmost campus, the Westpointe Center, offers classes in many different fields of study.
The Westpointe Center offers courses in non-destructive testing, SAT electronics and several general education classes to choose from.
West Valley Center
The newest SLCC campus, which will open in the fall of 2015, is the West Valley Center (WVC).
The WVC is home to mostly general education courses. The WVC was created to give students who live on the west side of the valley a better opportunity to attend classes.
No matter where a student lives, the different campuses of SLCC give each student individual program support, and the opportunity to pursue whatever career path they choose.
