    I really enjoyed my two years at SLC. The Social Service Worker program thoroughly prepared me for every aspect of my job working in the school system. No course in the program was wasted or lost. I am grateful for the knowledge I acquired and for the wonderful teachers I had. They made my journey so much easier.
