Rockford - A Rockford College alum gives back to the school that prepared him for life in the real world.

First Rockford Group Founder and President, Sunil Puri, donated five acres of land to the college, valued at $1 million.  The college originally owned the land in the 80s, but sold it in the midst of financial problems.

Puri eventually bought the land and now he's giving it back.  The main campus is now reconnected to East State Street.
