    It's actually really good, far more better than I thought it would be.

    The food here is amazing! They even make events and the students eat for free with the show of a valid school I.D.

    The Pioneer Cafe is a bit pricey, however, there is a McDonalds, Mexican restaurant, and Nino's Pizza on Halsted near the school.

    The food here is OK in my opinion. Most of the food items are too overpriced. I feel as a college student there should be cheaper menu options. Most students head over to McDonald's across the street to go eat.

    If you are looking the Greek life you see in movies at Prairie State, then you should consider a four year university.There are two fraternities at Prairie State College (Both males and females can join). They're both honor societies. I advise anybody with a high GPA to join them. It looks great on college applications and it helps out with scholarship opportunities as well.
