DMACC College Booth

Please stop by the DMACC booth in the Varied Industries Building at the Iowa State Fair. This year features a new, FREE “Selfie Station” where you can get your picture taken and upload it to your favorite social media site. Also, this year, the College will unveil it’s new 8 ft mascot. That’ll be another great photo opp. There will also be information on our nationally competitive sports programs, new career pathways and as always, some fun giveaways.

Look for the DMACC flag poles and rotating sign!
