Employer Event Package

Dear Business Owner and/or Manager,

With a substantial increase in freshman planning on attending Dixie State University in the fall, we cordially invite you to participate in “The Employer Event Package 2016,” which includes: Freshmen Orientation, the Dixie Business to Student Expo, and the Student Job Fair.

There are multiple ways for your company to be engaged with DSU and the student body.  See below for additional information including dates and pricing.

Freshmen Orientation (Ongoing throughout the summer)

Orientation is an interactive program designed for all first-time, freshmen students and their families and is required for all new freshman students.  Our number one goal is to help students experience a stress-free transition to college while introducing them to our great institution.  There are 11 scheduled orientation dates for students to attend and students and their parents are constantly checking the orientation website to register, reference dates, access a required online course, etc.

  • Participating businesses will have their logo displayed on the orientation website and printed information will be included in the welcome bags that every student and their parents receive.  Remember, this is your chance to get on the radar of both the students and their parents.
  • Cost of the Freshmen Orientation package:  $300

Business Expo (August 19th, 22nd, 23rd)

The three day Expo begins with Freshmen Friday.  This day is specifically designed for incoming freshmen to get familiar with campus, learn policies and procedures, and take part in fun activities. Freshmen truly begin to feel “the Dixie Spirit” and are excited to start this new adventure in their life.

  • Cost of the Business Expo: $350

Day One (August 19th)

  • Participating businesses will have a table in the Gardner Center Ballroom. Companies can provide samples, coupons, membership information, job applications, and any FREE materials. We anticipate 2,200 freshmen participating.
  • Participating businesses will also be featured on a large screen, in the Burns Arena, at the opening session while students are arriving.  All students are required to attend.

Days Two & Three (August 22nd & 23rd)

  • The Expo continues during the Week of Welcome on Monday, August 22nd and Tuesday, August 23rd.   During these two days, businesses are invited back to campus where they can host a table, share information and interact with the entire student body as they head back and forth to class.

Student Job Fair (September 7th)

The majority of our students have to work while going to college.  This event is the perfect opportunity to connect employers with potential employees.

  • Employers will be able to meet and interview students to fill the much needed positions within their companies. We will have tables set up in the Ballroom to serve as interview tables to be utilized throughout the course of the day.
  • Cost of this event:  $100
