    Sounds like we need another community college in the area like Salt Lake Community college for those taking two year programs or looking for an associates degree.

    I have long thought that we need more satellite campuses in areas where we would like to increase college attendance. Why doesn't Salt Lake Community College offer courses in Magna, Glendale, or Rose Park? How about opening small UVU campuses in Lehi, Spanish Fork, Payson, Benjamin, and maybe even down into Nephi.

    We are so concerned about improving the educational opportunities in our state. We need to make higher education visible and desirable in our smaller communities. I think offering the community college experiences and opportunities in more areas of the state would help alleviate some enrollment issues.
