  • I actually attend the other campus, but have had to stop by here for books or to see the proff. So far it seems like a very organized campus. I've come at different times of the day and there's always parking (sometimes further away, but I carry an umbrella for the sun) Once there were mariachi playing outside. The employees are always very helpful & professional and most of the students appear to be engaged in their environment. The bathrooms have always been clean when I've gone. I've taken 3 courses so far and the classes have been very engaging. This is a career change for me so I'm older, but I don't feel out of place.
  • Affordable , great professors, great opportunities for certification courses and this place keeps expanding. Honestly a few years ago, I would have given stc a bad review but as I continued my education here, I learned how to love this college. Working on my 2nd degree here and looking to continue my 3rd degree plan before I venture off into the university across town. This college is a great start to understand what the environment in a university is. Use the rate my professor Website to find out which professors are great to learn from. Trust me there are some great leaders on this campus, leaders the Rio grande valley needs.
