  • As an engineering major, Michael Berggren managed to complete his degree as an adult student commuting from an hour away. But perhaps even more notably, he got offered a full-time position at Elliott Aviation as a design engineer -- based in part on his senior design project -- and in spite of crashing a quadcopter!

    Learn how Berggren survived that episode -- as well as his advice to current and prospective students -- at the link below.

    Thank you for sharing your story with us, Michael!

  • Have you noticed the latest billboards around the QC featuring local college graduates who help "Make It Here"?

    We are proud to feature alumnus Nico Moreno, who graduated from WIU-QC with a degree in business, has worked for the HON company, and now helps soldiers in his role as a procurement specialist with the U.S. Army Contracting Command.

    During his time at WIU-QC, Moreno helped lead student government, and as an alumnus, has been involved with the Young Professionals of the Quad Cities and VIVA Quad Cities.

    Look for Moreno on one of seven new billboards placed in the community as part of the “QC Colleges, Raising the QC by 4,171 Degrees” initiative, and learn more at QCcolleges.com!

  • Congratulations to Nico Moreno, a 2017 WIU-QC alumnus who appears on a new round of local billboards! Moreno is one of the successful grads from Quad Cities higher education institutions who have partnered to show how our alumni "Make It Here" and contribute to the community.

    Moreno has served the Young Professionals of the Quad Cities group, helping new YP's "to feel welcome and at home" in the QC. As his feature says (at the link below), Moreno believes the Quad Cities is "full of opportunity, no matter what culture you come from.”

  • Keep your eye out for a new set of billboards placed around the community (on both sides of the river) that feature one of our many successful grads who choose to "Make It Here" in the Quad Cities!

    Meet Nico Moreno, who graduated with a bachelor's degree in business administration and management in 2017 and began working for the HON Company. Just recently, Moreno accepted a new position as a contract specialist, working on the Rock Island Arsenal, helping support the soldiers around the world. When he was a student at WIU-QC, Moreno was involved in Student Government Association, and he has served as an executive board member of VIVA Quad Cities

    share the passions and accomplishments of graduates from WIU-QC as well Augustana College, Black Hawk College, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, Palmer College of Chiropractic, St. Ambrose University, and Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences.

    Moreno is one of the productive and impactful alumni in the local workforce featured among the seven billboards, which were put up as part of the “QC Colleges, Raising the QC by 4,171 Degrees” initiative launched in August. This collaborative marketing campaign was launched to raise awareness of the many ways our seven institutions of higher learning collectively strengthen and enhance the greater Quad Cities.

    We're proud to feature Nico, and to celebrate the ways QC Colleges grads are contributing to the community! #MakeItHereQC #wiuqc

  • The timeliness of this topic was just proven last week when the Quad City Times reported that federal authorities are working on the case of a QC-area man and woman who allegedly trafficked a 16-year-old girl. As this movie night will show, the issue is not one that "only happens elsewhere." Please join us at WIU-QC for this event.

  • Where are they now? For this particular graduate from our Law Enforcement & Justice Administration program (LEJA), the answer is: right nearby, at the Moline Police Department, serving as an administrative lieutenant -- a position he became qualified for by pursuing his master's degree from WIU-QC.

    What advice might he have for aspiring law enforcement professionals? Find out here: http://bit.ly/2SPQQWW
