The college offers affordable classes in convenient locations. The staff in different departments have been friendly and knowledgeable. They answer any and all questions I may have and make me feel as though they truly care about me succeeding and bettering myself for my future. I appreciate the fact that classrooms and other open areas have always been well maintained and clean while I am there. Through STC I was able to achieve my Associates degree in Psychology and I am looking forward to the next chapter with them. Thank you, STC!
My experience in South texas college has been amazing! The classes that I took throughout the time in South Texas College have fascinated me to earn my degree in criminal justice at the end of my last semester I mastered the ability and skills acknowledge at the end of this road trip. Therefore, I thank and appreciate all my professors at South Texas College for teaching me the skills I needed for my future career in the criminal justice department.
