I attended dual enrollment classes during high school. I felt really connected to my future at the time and actually received a certification. I never knew what I was going to use it for but with time my goals changed and I ended up working at a bank. My certification really came in handy. Again as time goes on my goals have changed, I'm enrolling back in school and STC has really helped me every step of the way, just like when I was in high school. I appreciate the staff and I've never really had an awful professor. They may not offer the degree you want in the end but it is definitely a great place to start and the virtual campus make it great for those with extremely busy lives! I'm glad this is where I got my first shot and I'm grateful for the second chance!
Review South Texas College
South Texas College has been a great experience for my academic life. I love the small class room setting. A smaller class allows students, like myself, be able to carry one on one conversations with the professor and achieve higher insight within the material being discussed. However, there are some areas for improvement like student life. It is not that South Texas College does not try to have a student life rather, the harder they try the more it seems desperate and far from organic. Students usually keep to themselves, so trying to make friends is a little harder than one would think. Although, the lack of student life ironically helps boost academic studies. Finally, STC is a great college that offers a bright future without the hassle of a crazy student life.
My experience at South Texas College was phenomenal! What really helped me was the classroom size setting. Each of my courses never exceeded 25 students, which made it more personal and one-on-one when it came to needing help from the professors when I didn't understand something.
