Prairie State College Offers Several Gas-Friendly Options for Fall

Chicago Heights, IL—(ENEWSPF)— With rising gas prices, more and more people are looking for ways to save on the cost of fuel. This fall, Prairie State College offers several gas-friendly options. These options include Weekend College and online classes. For students who drive approximately 15 miles a day, driving to campus only one day a week could save a student approximately $1,000 in gas and vehicle costs a semester.

Students can take up to two classes on a single day by going to class on Fridays only. Friday class options include art, business, communication, English, humanities, math, physics, psychology, and sociology. For those looking to take classes on the weekend, students have the option to attend class on either Saturday or Sundays with a wide variety of offerings such as biology, business, communication, keyboarding, and psychology.

Prairie State also offers more than 30 online classes with offerings such as art history and business. Classes also are available days and evenings.

“Today’s student juggles many competing interests such as family, career, and social responsibilities,” said Shawn Govan, dean of counseling and academic advising. “Prairie State College recognizes that several priorities exist on the typical student agenda, and we offer a very accommodating way for students to pursue their educational goals.”
