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!

Are you looking for quality education at an affordable rate? South Texas College may just be for you.
As someone who is frugal, and is constantly watching their pennies, I didn't think college was a good move due to the fact that the national average cost is not favorable.
In any case, the college boasts a ton of degree plans, and a nursing program that rivals any that the Rio Grande Valley has to offer. This means that every dollar that you put in, will be worth it in the end.
Professors and administration are very knowledgeable about their positions, and what is expected of them. I was treated fairly during my time there.
Tuition is undoubtedly the lowest of any accredited 4 year college in the Rio Grande Valley, possibly even in Texas.
Within their walls, I flourished, and in due time attained my associates, which I proudly admire.
This college has grown immensely and has provided a high quality education that will benefit its students in the long run. The professors are extremely dedicated and knowledgeable and will help the student if they ask for help, they never make you feel inferior in any way. Campus is also pretty busy the halls are clean and the library is packed with students ready to learn and study for their classes. This creates a comfortable social atmosphere where you can grow as an individual, the cafeteria also provides tasty food where you can get replenish your energy in between classes.
