     It's a stressful process and a lot more than just high school seniors are taking steps to prepare for college. 
     Black Hawk College held its annual College Night Thursday. There were lines out the door to get into the jam-packed gymnasium. Representatives from nearly 100 colleges out of nine different states were there to answer students questions about things like admission requirements, tuition costs, and transfer options.
     It's described as almost like speed dating with prospective universities. But students are tending to get the ball rolling earlier, starting sometimes freshman year or earlier. That's one trend college reps are seeing that wasn't the case ten years ago. Also, that more high schoolers are attending dual enrollment at community colleges and continuing that option after graduating because many two-year schools offer a lot more than they used to.
     "I think a lot of it has to do with financially and also because of transfer agreements set up between four year universities and community colleges," said Karen Lindquist, Transfer Services Coordinator for Black Hawk College.
     If you were unable to attend the College Night you can contact Black Hawk College to get in touch with any of the colleges that attended. Call (309) 796-5153
