STCC named best 2-year college in Valley Advocate 2021 Readers’ Poll
STCC landed on the Advocate’s “best of” list in the same year the college was named fourth best in the United States by Academic Influence. The Valley Advocate released results of its 2021 readers’ poll on April 29.
“We are excited to once again join the Advocate’s ‘Best Of’ list,” said STCC President John. B. Cook. “Thank you to Valley Advocate readers who recognize STCC as a great place to get an education. I don’t think we would have made the list if it weren’t for our talented faculty and staff. They have shown a dedication and commitment to ensure our students succeed.”
