It is conveniantly located in Chicago Heights and also serves the surrounding area. The tuition is cheaper than any other big state school or private university. The good thing is that at Prairie State, the faculty can help you transfer to other universities to further your degree. This saves you thousands of dollars by starting out here and going somewhere else. The faculty here really want you to know the subject they are teaching, plus the tutoring program is free and helpful. If you start near, then you can go far.
I brag and promote the various programs offered at PSC. I also tell them about it's close proximity to other libraries and that the school's administrative hours are great throughout the year. The Administration department is super helpful and the campus is not too big compared to others.
It's very affordable and the workload is usually very manageable
