  • There are no dorms offered at South Texas College, but the commute to this college is relatively close. It's close to home anyways, so you don't really need a dorm.…

    STC offers homemade food. There is a breakfast and lunch menu, which have reasonable prices. In the mornings, you can expect fresh breakfast tacos, cereals, fruit cups, oatmeal, a variety of drinks, and even pizza! For lunch you can expect sandwiches, burgers, ice cream, pizza, chips, and a wide choice of candy.

    The food is way more better than High School cafeteria good. If you dont like college food, there is nearby fastfood restaurants. And there is a nearby HEB store to buy food as well.

    There are a bunch of vending machines and the library has a lot of snack food and drinks. I haven't explored enough to know if there's anything else.
