October 2008 Open Houses, $6000 in Scholarships

Daytona State College is holding 6 open houses this month: 1 at each campus. All of them are 2 hours, from 5-7 P.M. The first one is this evening at the Flagler / Palm Coast campus.

There will be some kind of food and drinks. The dates and locations were announced here. Here’s a copy of that list:

Daytona Beach is the last campus to hold the open house, which is 16 days off. I haven’t been to building 1200; it must be quite nice.

The DSC Foundation will be giving away $6000 in scholarships; $500 to 2 students at each open house. The drawing will be random. That sounds like incentive enough to go.

I remember the spring open house from 2007… they had this loud band playing music. You couldn’t talk to anyone. There were recruiters and course specialists there, but they didn’t seem to know much and I couldn’t hear what they were saying anyway. Then they showed this film on a projector and the projector was messed up so the film looked all white unless you were right in front of the screen. It wasn’t much fun.

I hope they do better this time. Unfortunately, I won’t be covering photography or attending because Thursday the 23rd is tied up for me. But good luck to everyone who has time for this. 🙂
