South texas college is good
South Texas College is relatively small compared to other institutions, which makes it a perfect college to complete your associates. Having smaller classes is easier to study, and the professors are able to pay more attention to each student. With personal experience, I must say this is a good college if you are looking for a safe and calm place where you can finish your credits quickly.
I have been a part of STC since freshman year as a dual enrollment student. It's an amazing school with a variety of courses that truly help us for our future. We are offered the same resources as an actual STC student and we get to participate with anything they do. We usually visit their campus for a variety of reasons. They are always so helpful and friendly, I love being a part of STC.
At first, I thought that it was not a good school at all. However, once I started attending the courses here, I learned that the courses were still challenging and I have learned quite a bit from my courses. This is an excellent college for students who are not financially stable (independent) and who do not want to leave the Rio Grande Valley. The tuition is VERY affordable and the education is a good value. There are not many bachelors degree programs, but many certifications and associates degrees are available and earn-able for the students who are willing to invest the time and effort. They have some great facilities. Their gym is great, there are a few individual rooms within the building for separate purposes (ex: one for basketball, volleyball, dance studio, martial arts, working out, etc.). The cafeteria serves some satisfactory meals, as well.

Well some of the advise i would inform myself would be, to be more prepared by being more dependant. Dependant because in college people are not going to hold your hand. There you need to makes things happen not wait for the things to happen. I would advise myself that it is not as easy as everyone says, that inorder to pass with good grade one must strive for the best. In order to become the best you must study hard to achive the grades desired. Also that some instructures don't baby you and that when dead lines are posted you must comply with them or you have a chance of failure. Also to walt with your head up high, remember you made it to college enjoy it. Make every day like if its going to be your last one, and to remember to have dedication and determination to be what you want to be. Also to always work had because in the long run it will pay off.
Everybody is local and gets along great. As soon as you step on campus you already feel confident and know whats going on. Teachers are friendly and understanding and will always help you when you need it. On a personal experience the teachers treat you as if they were your own, a family in other words. Make friends easily and study partners are never hard to find. Overall , its an awsome school and it wouldnt be if it wasnt for the teachers/students , so I would have to say the best thing about my school has to be the people
Well the worst thing about my school is that it is not a big school as a university. even though i like small classrooms i would like to attend a school that has many buildings. My school is the size of a high school.
How much money I needed, because when I started a couple of years ago I couldn't go to school because I didn't qualify for finicial aid. Now I do but its not enough because just one book is expensive.
South Texas College is small enough to cater to its students and make them feel like they are not lost in the crowd, such as in bigger schools, but still has the credentials to provide an excellent education.
I get along with almost all i encounter!! Some are supportive and i enjoy theire pressence while attending school!
There is no person that can be deprived of going to school. In my school any one can enroll and make something out of themselves. The only things you need is dedication and determination and anyone can make it and have a future with the right knowledge. No one is let behind.
My school is best known for its teachers and the students who attend it. I have heard it is one of the top colleges in the nation and i can see why. The people there are friendly and they look extremly focused on their work. Everybody helps each other out and its never hard to find people studying together. They have alot of tutors and special programs for those students who need help on there work and thats what i love about this school. It's a perfect example of the title "Community College".
There is an absolute warmth and friendliness with the students and the faculty there. They care about your education and also do a phenomenal job encouraging and supporting you as a student there.
When i talk to my friends i always tell them that in my school the maximum amount of students are 30. i always say that small class rooms are better than having 800 students in a class. The andvantage is more interaction with the teacher
Anybody who wants to be in the health profession or who are getting a higher degree as I am at this time, I am transitioning from LVN to RN and this school will make it so much easier to attend and complete.
I would say the most fustrating thing about my school is that it does not provide loans for students. They go off on payment plans that sometimes students cant pay.
I would have to say the ones associated to the medical field since their programs get most of the money.
STC offers Saturday classes, but the majority of students on campus are either making payments at Cashiers, sending out transcripts from Admissions, receiving tutoring at the Center for Learning Excellence, working/chilling at the Library, or meeting with an instructor because the office hours were inconvenient.
There are no campus dorms, but there is are a series of apartment complexes right across the street. There are also houses nearby for rent. The surrounding areas are also undergoing upgrading with the construction of the new park and need-based family housing.
The Cafeteria and on-site Barnes & Nobles are the only on-campus dining options, sorry no Starbucks in the Barnes & Nobles. Anything pre-packaged is over-priced, so just head down to the H-E-B on the corner of the street. List of restaurant's within a block radius: Blimpie (Similar to Sub-Way), H-E-B Chinese, Jack-in-the-Box, McDonald's, Taco Rico, and Sub-way.
Parking. Abortion. Vegetarianism.
Are really friendly and you can relate to all of them they share their wisdom with you
Extra-curricular and basics. They transfer out to most public institutions, even to MIT. The most popular programs like welding and interpreting are the certificate programs and allied health programs.
The classes are as small as 8 students and as large as 50. There is one course, Microcomputer Applications, that is offered in a computer lab the size of two computer labs. The classes have a mix of students from all ages, dual-enrollment, fresh out of high school, and returning students. Some classrooms have benches and others have desks that seat two people. The only exceptions are computer labs and the single auditorium class mainly used for the Bachelor degree courses.
