Check and Double-check

In the business of television and video production we have a term that I have known for almost all my long career.  We call it the “idiot-check” and it has saved my bacon--and probably my job--on numerous occasions, starting from my days as a studio and location camera operator.

SLCC Promise

At Salt Lake Community College, we believe higher education should be available to anyone who desires it. SLCC Promise helps eligible, full-time students pay for their education by covering the cost of tuition and fees when federal grants fall short. The Promise is intended to remove economic barriers and to provide a pathway for SLCC students to complete their degrees.

College math doesn’t have to be dreadful

Math is one of the most dreaded courses many students face while attending college. But with a little help, it doesn’t have to be.

Many students assume they are terrible at math and won’t be able to pass the required classes, no matter how much help they get. This thought often delays students from taking math early on.

“So many students wait to take their math courses until the end and that forces them to stay in school longer just to get through it,” says Salt Lake Community College academic and career advisor Faye Leapai. “We recommend [students] take care of any math courses in the first couple of semesters … if problems arise, they have time to correct it.”
