�We hold this event each year,� said HCC transfer coordinator, Thedford Jackson. �It�s beneficial for our advisors because it keeps them up-to-date on the most recent issues that affect our students who choose to transfer to any one of these state institutions. Students also benefit from a chance to speak to recruiters representing the various schools.� funny images

The event was followed that evening by the Northwest Illinois College Fair, sponsored by high schools in the Highland district. The state university representatives joined nearly 50 other colleges and universities. A general financial aid presentation was held by HCC staff during the event. The fairwas open to area high school students, Highland students and the public. funny photos
