“Our community has always stood strong in its belief in the power of education and the ribbon cutting is a testament of their commitment to South Texas College and a celebration of how together we will transform lives for future generations to come.”

The new construction includes the Health Professions and Sciences Building and a new library. The Student Services and Activities Buildings were also expanded.

Starr County Campus Administrator Dr. Arturo Montiel says it is all to benefit students and their families.

“Parents of Starr County demonstrated their support for higher education through their votes to approve the 2013 Bond Election. Now that construction is nearing completion, students can study in many occupational areas offered in the new Health Professions and Sciences Building that were not previously offered.”
