Not many colleges have graduated a Nobel laureate. We have. Her name was Jane Addams. Long before she won the 1931 Nobel Peace Prize, she was a Rockford College student.
At Rockford College, we’re still educating students with ideals Jane put in motion – students who understand that with the proper tools, they can change their world.
