Daytona Beach Campus Hosts Record-Breaking Open House

Embry-Riddle’s annual Daytona Beach Campus Open House hosted its largest crowd ever — of 660 prospective students — on Saturday, Oct. 29. Along with families, nearly 2,000 people visited to tour campus, meet faculty, staff and students, and learn more about the university.

In addition to academic departments, several student-life programs also participated in the event, giving future Eagles the chance to meet with representatives from Athletics, the Digital Studio, Rec Sports, the Avion student newspaper, ROTC programs and more. Visitors also had the opportunity to tour Silver Airways’ Saab 340B Plus airliner, which flew families into Daytona Beach from Ft. Lauderdale to visit campus earlier that day then parked on the flight line throughout Open House.
