LOVE the professors! Haven’t had a professor I dislike yet. Each class is informative and the perfect small size. The campus itself is boring though they do try to make it fun I’ll give them that. The cafe hours are purely awful for student athletes away at games. And the food isn’t the best anyway. I spent way to much money eating out even with the meal plan :/

Being a Graphic Design major and an Art Therapy minor, most of the art department professors have left the college. There are only two full-time professors and adjunct. Professors are saying that there will be no more art program within the next two years. Overall my experience at STAC is ok. The professors care about their students or they don't care about their students or their job & are just skating by. The students that are at STAC don't care about doing their work only drinking & most students show up to classes either; drunk, hungover, or high. Campus Safety is a joke they are all retired cops & don't enforce any rules. Coursework is average it is not hard but it is also not easy at the same time. There are only two places on campus to eat; The Grill & Dining Hall & if you are a commuter you are not allowed to eat The Dining Hall, you can only eat at The Grill. The food is overpriced and not worth what you are paying for since most of the time people get sick from it.
For an incoming college student STAC is a very welcoming place. The students and staff all develop strong relationships along with kind encouragement. The campus is clean and safe with stores and other facilities near by.
