STCC as an educational institution is great.Not so brightEngineering Department
STCC as an educational institution is great. The student body on the other hand is horrible. If you came here to learn, please expect that you are walking into 13th grade. The number of special needs students have skyrocketed, the number of people attending has skyrocketed, and the violence has skyrocketed. In the past two years there have been two stabbings on campus, and we have not been notified until HOURS later. The professors are great, helpful, and genuinely care about the students. You will run into "hard" professors (a.k.a professor that actually want you to learn the subject) and then you will run into easy professors (ones that will let you pick your own exam questions.) If you have another option...take it. The student body here is very judgmental, harsh, and ignorant. In one of my classes there was a student with a brain injury that a majority of students would make fun of. Seriously guys? The funny thing was she did better than them on the exams. You will run into kids who are desperate to fit in and talk back to professors, cliques, etc. I'm out of this school and I will never recommend this place to anyone. In some of my classes I felt like I was in 2nd grade.

It's a good place to go if youQuite BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
It's a good place to go if you have NOWHERE else to go. Both my parents attended STCC and given the money you save by attending STCC instead of a 4 year school I suppose it's worth it but my first semester was the worst time I have ever had in school in my life. I grew up loving school and assumed that by coming to STCC I would get a high quality education and I assumed wrong. Most professors are used to kids who don't care so if you're a student who does care you can very easily be lost in the crowd. My second semester has been better but I have been actively applying to different schools. For me, staying here for another year would be torture. Of course there are a small few decent professors and some nice people. The school is located in the rough end of Springfield with little attempts at security. There was a dead body found in a parking lot last year for goodness sake! I've never had problems personally but it's just not the best place to spend your money or time if you could do better.

Some of the best teachers I've ever had. STCC is known for its brilliant teachers. Unfortunately, no one else aside from your teachers will care about you. My counselor literally ignored my calls and emails.
