SLCC Advances to Region 18 Volleyball Tourney

Salt Lake Community College Women's Volleyball team has clinched the number 2 seed for the Region 18 NJCAA Volleyball Tournament. The tournament will be held at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls, on November 2-3.


“We’re the only team in the conference to take CSI to five sets. We’re playing well at the end of the year and feel like we’ve got a lot of competition left in us,” SLCC head volleyball coach Sue Dulaney said. “This is a tough team. We’ve got four seniors who  have done a great job for us all year, and we are excited to see what we can do against some great teams.”

The single elimination tournament features two of the country’s top 5teams—with SLCC ranked fifth and tournament host CSI ranked third. The winner automatically earns a spot in the NJCAA National Tournament to be held at Missouri State University in West Plains, Missouri from November 15-17.

Utah Symphony Orchestra Music Director Thierry Fischer Speaks, Performs at SLCC Philosophical Conference

Thierry Fischer, Utah Symphony Orchestra Music Director, headlines the SLCC Student Undergraduate Philosophical Conference’s artistic session. Fischer’s address and performance will take place on Monday, November 12, 2012 at 11 a.m. and will be entitled, 'Noise and Noises: Being Surrounded by Noise Affects Our Perception and Creativity.'



“We’ve seen this conference grow substantially because of Professor Izrailevsky’s leadership.

Wool Omnibus by Hugh Howey

One of the new acquisitions arriving this month at the SLCC library is the New York Times Bestseller, theWool Omnibus. This collection by Hugh Howey is a compilation of five novellas that create a disturbing dystopia. In the world Howey creates, the outside world is a wasteland, and to survive, humans now live in a silo reaching deep into the earth. While most of the people in the silo just want to survive the day to day and live with the lies they are taught, others ask questions. It is the uncertainty these questions create that causes this fragile civilization to begin to unravel.  Fraught with political intrigue, bizarre superstitions, and a varied cast of characters, the world in Wool will suck you in as you try to figure out what is really going on and who can be trusted.

On top of being an exciting read, Wool has also helped demonstrate the shift in our publishing world. The five novellas in this omnibus were originally self-published by Hugh Howey.  This collection, which did n…

SLCC Cyclist Wins USA National Championship

Cortlan Brown won the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championship riding for Salt Lake Community College on May 6, 2012. Brown’s winning time for the Division II race was three hours twenty minutes and twelve seconds—placing him one second ahead of Edward Grystar from Brown University.


The race was held in Ogden, Utah, giving Brown, who hails from nearby Bountiful, Utah, a home course advantage.  “I’m from here, so luckily I’ve had a chance to do a few rides up it,” Brown said.

A crash in the race’s first lap involving about half of the field of 93 knocked 17 riders out of the race. “I was about 10 wheels back or so and watched a guy a couple riders to my left cross wheels with the guys in front of him and he went down sliding sideways taking out a row of people all the way across the road,” Brown said.  “When I looked back to see what had happened all that I could see was a wall of bikes and people on the ground.”

The crash split the pack, but the group left behind was able to mak…
