The Louisiana girl who went viral on social media after accidentally applying to Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) and not South Louisiana Community College visited Utah, and seemed to enjoy it.

Kaitlynn Lovelady was invited by Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox, the Salt Lake Library and SLCC to visit the Beehive State in March.

Lovelady took the offer and posted about her experience on social media.

Cox welcomed Lovelady during her stay.

The Louisiana native asked her Twitter followers what she should do. They all came up with classic Utah adventures.

On the second day, Lovelady stopped by Iceberg Drive Inn and noted the ice cream was "bigger than my head."

She seemed to enjoy her time in the Beehive State.

And on her last night in Utah, she was sad to leave.

Lovelady's trip to Utah first came into consideration after her tweet about applying to the wrong school went viral.

It reads:

I just applied to SLCC for summer class only to realize it’s Salt Lake Community College in SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH instead of SOUTH LOUISIANA COMMUNITY COLLEGE. GOODBYE $40!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
