After high school I didn't think I was cut out for the college life, It was one thing to take college courses in school, but to actually go to the college itself was scary for me. I honestly didnt think i was going to make it. However, things took a turn for the better and I ended up making great life long friends on my first day! I am absolutely great-full for the college community at STC, I always felt welcome and people were very friendly!

I used to be a student at south texas college and I will say it was a great experience. It offers alot of good academic programs along with extra curricular activities. The environment was very relaxing which helped me alot in focusing on my academics or studying before exams. Getting together for study sessions or to simply complete assignments was no hassle since we could comfortably meet anywhere on campus. Furthermore, I had some of the best teachers. They were very helpful and knowledgeable. The teachers really cared about students passing their class. There was communication between students and teachers, it wasn’t like an ordinary class where the teacher comes in and lectures then just leaves. They would actually offer help after class ended and answer all questions we had. Overall, South Texas College was a pleasant school that offered a pleasant experience. I wouldn’t change anything from South Texas College. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
Very great environment created by the instructors! Being here really enhances my learning in all subjects like English, Anatomy & Physiology, and Psychology. Faculty is always willing to help because they want all students to succeed.
