    The food available for purchase at SWIC is pretty good, but the price is through the roof, compared to the other restaurants around. Due to SWIC's location though, it isn't hard at all to visit these restaurants near by in under 5 minutes.

    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.

    Whether you're someone who enjoys reading a good book, studying 24/7, or simply playing cards with friends, SWIC is able to accommodate. There seems to always be a group of individuals just like you who are more than happy to take you into their group.

    SWIC offers one fraternity, Phi Theta Kappa, a national honor society. PTK hosts several events through the year, mostly fundraisers for local charities.

    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.
