Rockford College Now Rockford University

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Rockford's only private university will need some new signage this summer.

Rockford College has announced that it will become Rockford University on July 1. Trustees with the 165-year-old school unanimously approved the name change this weekend.

The college's president Dr. Robert Head says the switch will hopefully draw in more students and will better describe the type of higher education the school offers.
