Coming from Mississippi, I have no experience with public transit but I have a relatively new car. If I have to, I don't mind commuting as long it's less than 30 minutes.

I will be working at Oakland Ave. near St. Louis Community College-Forest Park.

Public schools aren't important since I am single with no children.

I am looking forward to your suggestions.
900.00 will get you an awesome flat in Dogtown and allow you to bike, maybe even walk to work

It depends on comfortable you are with going urban - Dogtown is a safe, medium density neighborhood - but it depends on what your preferences are

Do you have any preferences regarding walkability, nearby amenities, etc?

Do you prefer Urban or Suburban living?

If you are working near St. Louis community college, I would definitely recommend looking in dogtown, also known as Clayton-Tamm, first to see if there is anything available there for your price range. Its a great neighborhood that I enjoy going to often (I don't live there but I get my hair cuts at Happy Medium on Tamm). It has some good local restaurants and a neighborhood brewery and is easy drive to the best that St. Louis can offer. Its roots are working class irish mixed in with some doctors and students and the people I've met from there are friendly.

I know that a fairly big apartment complex called cortana is going to open soon near there. This development has more of a suburban feel to it. I'm sure there are options available that are more well integrated into the neighborhood as well.

Don't mind the hospital demolition that they're doing there. Its going to be an awesome zoo expansion eventually complete with a gondola across the highway:
