Daytona State offers fall open houses, showcases


Fall is traditionally the season for high school seniors and juniors to start making their college selections. Daytona State College invites students, parents and families to choose an open house close to home.

The open houses help any future student explore a college education, choose ways to advance their career or re-tool for a new job. A fall open house will be held at each of the college’s five campuses and two instructional sites; each event features a chance to win a $500 scholarship from the Daytona State Foundation.

This year Daytona State has added an opportunity to learn about its programs and to watch the dress rehearsal of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare’’ during the Oct. 10 open house at the News-Journal Center.  Showcases on certain programs also are scheduled.

Representatives will discuss programs offered at Daytona State, including the new Bachelor of Science in Nursing, new Bachelor of Science in Information Technology,  Bachelor of Applied Science in Supervision and Management, Bachelor of Science in Education (seven degree choices),  Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology,  Associate of Arts, Associate of Science programs and certificate programs.

Financial aid experts and dual enrollment information for high school students will be available at most events.
