Student Body: South Texas College is a great school for anyone that is willing to put their effort in to achieve their career goal. South Texas College accepts anyone, there is no diversity, everyone is treated equal because we all have a dream to accomplish. To put it in short words we basically respect one another no matter what.

Career Services: I have not gotten a job or graduated yet but from what I see there is a diesel club .

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I'm currently in the diesel program and as for the work load I feel like the program need more hands on . and as for the intern jobs I had a professor tell a company not to hire me and I think that's some place where they might need some help.

Campus Resources: I absolutely love them all !!

4 College Senior

Facilities: The facilities that South Texas College overs to the students are very helpful! South Texas College has lots of programs such as PASS program, where students can borrow books for every semester; CLE &SI programs, where students can find tutors to help them with their classes. This programs are tremendous help and I wish all colleges or universities would have them too. The library, computer labs, science labs are so awesome! I think we have the best library ever!

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Although i haven't had problems in completing my classes or curriculum, unfortunately I have run into some unpleasant experience in transferring the credits. I was trying to transfer some of the core curriculum credits, but for some reasons, for the other university (Texas Tech University in Lubbock) they were not transferable. I hope one day the can solve this issue

STC's originality and distinguishing characteristics are what make it special. The students, professors, faculty, and staff are exceptional. The majority of the students at STC believe that the education they receive is something to cherish and appreciate. Don’t think that just because STC is not the most recognized college that it is not worth attending. Being a student at STC means you will receive one-on-one attention from professors and staff who have a genuine interest in your education and success.

One thing you do have to learn to embrace while attending STC is the heat. Students at STC sweat out each semester, but not just because of the tests. Although the buildings are very well air-conditioned, the temperatures in the Rio Grande Valley usually elevate up to 110 degrees throughout late spring, summer, and early fall. Regardless of the heat, most students learn to overcome it and eventually fall in love with STC because of its close-knit atmosphere and caring people. STC isn’t just a college you leave behind in two years. It is a place where you make lifelong friends, have unforgettable experiences, and obtain the knowledge that you need to succeed in life.
