3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It is pretty good to have a psychology major at Prairie State College especially because most of the people that teach it have actually worked in the field and have stories to share about almost every topic. The work load is pretty easy most of the time but sometimes everything can pile up at once. their also isn't that many job opportunities given here.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: In the courses I admit that I have learned a considerable amount from psychology, sociology, philosophy and the English courses but the math department seemed to lack a little and seem too simple.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It is very difficult to be a Nursing major at this school. Every other person attending prairie state is either there for Nursing or Criminal Justice.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Class registration is the worst. The advisor's don't help at all.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It available to you if you want it.
