Honoring Students & Programs



FROM FOX NEWS / April 4, 2018

The Center for Arts and Media at Salt Lake Community College houses more than 120 thousand square feet of hands-on lab work and classrooms where students can study everything from video production to graphic design.

The center itself is full of artistic character with some areas of the original structure dating back to the 1930s. Within its walls, students have a chance to get a hands-on taste of a number of disciplines.

Film student Beto Gonzalez or graphic design student Hali Araneo feel confident in their abilities to hand their dream job in a media field once they graduate because of all of the amazing resources offered to them at the Center for Arts and Media. Students of all trades have the opportunity to work with real-world resources like a live production studio, a graphic design green room and even a fully functioning animation lab.

Whether it’s filmmaking, television production, graphic design or advertising, Salt Lake Community College’s Center for Arts and Media offers it all. Having each field of study available in one single facility allows for students to understand how all of the different components work together.

Located at the school’s South City Campus in Salt Lake City, the Center’s emphasis is a strong focus in digital arts. Instructors are training students for jobs in animation, illustration, photography, film, TV, video and radio production, web design, graphic design, virtual technologies, music and digital sound technology, computer graphics, gaming and electronic publishing. “”I believe it can change the landscape of how we in higher education nurture our students toward either transferable degrees with our sister USHE institutions or the vibrant industry within the digital disciplines,” said SLCC School of Arts, Communication and Media Dean Richard Scott. “A facility like this will enable us to provide world class, industry standard experiences for the state’s digital student.” There is definitely an “It” quality to the new Center.
