It's our favorite time of year... EVIT Expo is this Saturday!
EVIT Expo is the school's huge annual open house. It's an opportunity for each program to strut its stuff and show the community what EVIT is all about. But more than that, it's just fun for all who attend!
Some of the exciting events this year include a Parade of Classes, a helicopter landing by an EVIT aviation student, a mock surgery by Surgical Technology students, tethered hot air balloon rides, and of course, the launch of the radio program's brand new radio station, 90.7 FM KVIT The Goldmine!
Other exciting things to see and do around campus: watch the Collision Repair Technology students airbrush designs live, get $5 haircuts and manicures in Cosmetology, make a "DNA necklace" in Medical Biotechnology, check your vital signs in Nursing Assisting, tour an ambulance in EMT, try out the green screen in Video Productions, see the robotic arm in Electronics, sample some American Barbeque in Culinary Arts, and much more!

The Expo lasts from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The new Mr. & Ms. EVIT will be crowned at the end of Expo, at 12:45 p.m. Immediately following the coronation, the radio station launch party will begin, right in the front/center of campus, near the flagpoles. The radio launch party will include a performance by local classic rock band The Rave and Mariachi Fuego Del Sol, and a presentation by Mesa Mayor Scott Smith. At 2:30 p.m., local American Idol celebrity Jordin Sparks will help the radio students officially "sign on," she'll cut the ribbon, and she'll be the students' first on-air interview!
Don't miss it!
