I love the feeling of comfort when I walk in campus. I get this awesome feeling. Getting my basics in South Texas College was the smartest decision that I have made. Reason's why, because you save money. I also love that I am getting an Associate's in Education before heading for the program in The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Starting your college education in STC is the way to go! Go Jaguars!
Review South Texas College
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!
The teachers are very enthusiastic in wanting to help students and actually teaching them. The mobile printing stations are very convenient! All though parking can be such a drag at times, it's well worth it when it comes to the education.
