    The cafeteria has a ton of options but its a little overpriced. They have good wraps and salads though. There is also a starbucks in the LA building.

    Only the Belleville campus has a cafeteria. There is catering by a local restaurant at the Granite City campus but it definitely leaves something to be desired.

    The food is great, but can be quite expensive if one is expecting to eat a full course meal during breaks. I'd rather suggest only eating occassionally because your pockets could run low if you eat everyday.

    SWIC offers a cafeteria on campus with fresh meals throughout the day, and they recently added a Starbucks. You can upload money to your Kashmir Cash Card and use it in the cafeteria as a prepaid card.

    SWIC is located in the Belleville Area. It is very close to great food places in all directions. Across the street, there is a Chick Fillets, a Jimmy Johns, a Chinese Buffet, and a Subway in the Wal-Mart. There are a variety of restaurant 10 minutes away in the Ofallon area such as Crazy Bowls and Wraps, Bread Co., Quedoba, 54th Street grill, and etc. Also 10 minutes away is Main Street which also contains a variety of Restaurants. If your into exotic foods, two places you would enjoy, which are fairly close, are India's Oven and Sushi Thai by Samaran.

    There's a Cafe and a Starbucks on campus. The Cafe has a fairly broad range, but prices are a tad high. Most of the hot food is usually fairly fresh, and they do have meals every day for a good price.

    The only Greek life I saw was a program called Phi Theta Kappa which is offered to community college students across the globe. You have to have a certain grade point average to be invited to join.
