“SLSS 1000 has been my gateway into loving life, as opposed to just living it. My teachers and mentors have inspired me to start taking risks and utilize more of my potential. I have loved the level of involvement and interaction that takes place in each course.

"Knowing that my brain is picking on up more than I ever imagined gave me a much needed boost of confidence! I learned that my mind and eyes can become a powerful information collector, not just a left to right word reader. In fact, you can train your mind to read left to right and up and down." Samuel, UVU Junior
"The course not only helped me improve my reading speed but also my ability to organize and retain information from assigned readings and lectures. I wish I would have started learning speed reading techniques in junior high or high school so I could become a master." - Stephen, UVU BSN
