VIBE live ‘shout-out’!, 10/17 - interview with Alumni Director, Suzette Cameron


It was a time to revel in the Falcon spirit as Daytona State alumni, friends and students flocked to the Daytona Beach Campus last November for the college's first homecoming festival in decades. This year's homecoming - Oct. 18-21 - features a series of events to celebrate Falcon Pride throughout our community, including the Mr. & Ms. Daytona State College Pageant, alumni awards recognition, 5K walk/run, Car, Truck & Bike Show, Tailgate Party and athletic home games. Throughout that week everyone is encouraged to show their Falcon Pride by wearing their DBJC, DBCC and DSC apparel. Be sure to tag your photos and share on social media with #DSCHC2017.
