The president of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University told officials from Rockford, Ill., over the weekend that the city's main competition in serving as home to the university's third campus is Houston. The officials had flown to Daytona Beach, Fla., for the Wings and Waves Air Show, where Embry-Riddle President John Johnson said Rockford is a "strong candidate" for the campus. Trustees will be presented with information on the choices in November, and a decision on the new campus is expected in March.
