ROCKFORD - Rock Valley College hosted their 42nd annual 'College Night' Wednesday night.

The event hosted 151 different colleges and universities as well as military reps who were all there to answer questions and give information to prospective students.

Officials say between 2,000 and 3,000 students attended the event. They say it helps to make students smart consumers when it comes to choosing a school.

Coordinator of 'College Night' Jennifer Thompson explains, "I think it's really important for us to be smart consumers, especially when it comes to the cost of higher education. So, coming out to meet with a college admissions rep will give you an introductory feel of what a college or university or trade school has to offer."

This year's event was the largest ever in terms of schools attending.
