KAYSVILLE -- To give the public an idea of what Davis Applied Technology College has to offer, DATC is using as a carrot prizes and a one-month scholarship for those who attend its Jan. 27 biannual open house.
The open house will begin at 7 p.m. The DATC campus, about 130,000 square feet of building space, is at 550 E. 300 South in Kaysville.
Through a drawing, DATC will offer a one-month scholarship -- a value of up to $400, said Misty Dangel, DATC public relations specialist.
"We want to give (the public) a reason to come here and look at what we have," she said.
"It's really nice. It works out for the student," Dangel said of the scholarship.
DATC holds open houses each January and September to give the public an opportunity to learn of its programs, Dangel said.
"During the event, we will educate you on who we are, what we offer and provide two workshops on career planning and financial aid," James Larson, DATC director of marketing and community affairs, said in a news release.
Refreshments and campus tours will be offered to those interested at the conclusion of the event, Larson said.
DATC annually serves about 9,400 students and offers 37 programs, Dangel said.
Rather than just grow the number of programs it offers, Dangel said, the college provides programs that will have the best chance of helping its students gain employment.
The DATC campus includes the Simmons Entrepreneur Center, established to help individuals interested in starting their own business, and the Haven J. and Bonnie Raw Barlow Technology Building, a 64,000-square-foot manufacturing building that opened in 2009.
Those who cannot attend the Jan. 27 open house may schedule a campus tour by calling 801-593-2500 or may enter to win a one-month scholarship to the college by logging on to www.datc.edu/change.
