I love SLC
and it's my home. If it's free school, I'd say take it. And although it's SLC
, there is still plenty of partying to do. Careful with the mormon girls... They're hot, but you'll also get in big trouble with their fathers!
As far as things to do??? Well we have 5 national parks within 4 hours of SLC
and countless state parks and national recreation areas. We have 9 ski resorts within an hour, and 7 of those are within 35 minutes. Las Vegas is within driving distance (less than 5 hours). And you can get all the decent beer and porn an hour and a half away in evanston WY
has a hub here so most places you'll need to go will have a non-stop flight. And WN
keeps the prices down so you won't be paying out of the nose. And if you need a quick day trip, Park City is 30 min away with lots of fun bars and shopping. The U of U is a good school and as far as Utah standards go it's quite liberal
Good luck with your decision! Follow the link below for a tour of the Salt Lake City area.
