STCC is a community college, and you getQuite BrightOther
STCC is a community college, and you get what you pay for. Compared with a lot of community colleges, STCC is great. I went here for two years as part of a high-school dual-enrollment program, and I have loved (almost) every minute of it. Most of my professors have been very helpful and friendly, and they always do their best to help students. Others (and I'm a liberal arts student planning to transfer, so a lot of my classes have been gen. eds, which are usually lower-quality no matter where you go) are only interested in pushing their own agendas or have been so beaten down by stupid questions it's like they've given up.

STCC has an older student base, so most of the students are fairly serious and well-meaning. If you're going into a technical program, go to STCC, because they are very well-respected. And even if you're taking just general classes, STCC is much better than say, HCC, which has a younger student base.It's hard to make friends, though most students are very down-to-earth and friendly. For people who want technical degrees, or for people who want to get a solid base before transferring to a four-year school, I would recommend STCC in a heartbeat.

This is an amazing school to attend ifSuper BrilliantOther
This is an amazing school to attend if you want to transfer to a 4 year school. I transferred and graduated from UMASS. I enjoyed my classes at STCC more than Umass.At a 4 year school the first 2 years are spent taking general education classes. At STCC you can complete 2 years and complete all your general eds and transfer into a state school/university as a junior. Its a great program that saves a lot of money. Dont waste your time taking classes under 100 level because they wont transfer.

This college is good for education but itQuite BrightEngineering Department
This college is good for education but it is not good for sports for regular students. Also, the people in the department of your major may be nice. But the financial aid staff and the bursar office is not appropriate and rude. Very few people are there to listen to your complain. I would try to avoid recommending this college to other students.
