SLCC is as hard as you make it. I have people in some classes that are just plain Retarded. However the people who want to learn will put time into it and get the most out of it.
The U is nice, but the simple fact of having 300kids in your basic classes and paying 3X more then SLCC just doesnt appeal to me. Biggest class I ever had was 40 kids, so its not that bad. Like any place, you have good and bad teachers. Ive dropped classe do to having a poor instructor, and have been trying to take classes only from Proffesors(sp?). This made a pritty big difference.

<--Going to the U once I finish at slcc

I guess it makes sense why you like SLCC better.

Jk man, if money is an issue, than SLCC is a good option

I am at the U. Only been up there for 3 weeks, but I really like it so far. My good friend is going to SLCC and he enjoys it there too. My classes up at the U really aren't that big though... Writing has about 20 math has about 30 Comp essentials has about 50 Solar system has about 50 and golf has about 15. I was expecting classes of 500 haha

Well something that allot of people dont realize.
Some of the better programs such as Medical, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering just to name a few will transfer 100% over to the U.
I just dont see the point in paying 4K a semester at the U, when I learn the same stuff at SLCC for 1/3 of the cost, and it transfers over 100% to the U.
Dont get me wrong if I had parents to make it rain, or I wanted to get 60K+ into student loans I would be at the U. But if you spend a little time talking to professors, you will realize that you can be at the U as a Jr in a Engineering program for fraction of the cost of what it would have been starting and ending at the U.

Every other car at the U is a subaru, so don't worry you will be among "friends".

I agree the general requirement is complete bs, in other developed countries you come out with a profession (like a pt) after getting a bachelors degree, here you have to take fine arts and diversity classes.

Ever question why community colleges and trade school programs are two years while undergrad degrees are four? The idea behind an undergrad degree is that you get the two years of trade training as well as two additional years of general education which help make you a more well-rounded individual.

Does it work out that way? Sometimes. I, for one, loaded myself with AP courses in high school which allowed me to skip the majority of my generals at the U. That's by far the most affordable way to get a four-year degree on your own dime.

The second-cheapest option is to do your general ed requirements at a community college like SLCC and then transfer those credits to a full university when it comes time for your major field work.

Of course, in a lot of cases what you learn in two or four years at a college or university doesn't compare with what you learn in two months on the job... but that's another issue entirely.

U of U graduate here! I agree though SLCC is the way to go for your generals. Save your money! I did almost all of my classes at the U and the few I did at SLCC where much easier. I wish I would have done all my generals at SLCC.

I graduated from the U in 07, went back for a few more classes and the morning schedule didn't work for me so I'm probably going to SLCC for their night classes... Money saving helps, but if the U offered the same classes as night classes I'd be there in a heartbeat.

Like I said if money is an issue than go to SLCC the first two years. But a lot of the reason to not go to SLCC, is that there is absolutely no social life there. I would rather go to the U and have fun. I have friends that go to SLCC and that hate the social life there, cuz there is none. They have made no friends, no nothing. But class wise, they say that most of the professors are fine.

I used to bomb from the Union building to President's Circle every day. The ride down was fun. The hike back... not so much.

The #1 reason I hate the U is the tons of little bitches up there that are in this situation.

Yeah your smart... Cause you don't have a job or a life or a girl friend or hobbies. You grow pimples in abundance and you never get laid. Mommy and daddy just pay for everything. You had a good high school education and I barely made it.

Bitches! Ho ass ******, talk to mother ****ing much, stay to your own, get your own, be independent *******!
