    Testimonials

    I always felt that the staff at SLC went out of their way to get to know me, rather than refer to me as "just another student number." Coming from a small town, this friendliness meant a lot and it helped me to get involved in student life and other opportunities that SLC offers, which in turn helped me to land a job in my field the day after I graduated!
