My Daytona State

The President's Office

Dr Carol Eaton

Welcome to Daytona State College – where learning for life is our way of life.

Whether you’re a student, a parent, a supporter or someone interested in exploring our institution, you’ll find remarkable opportunities to enrich your life and reach your goals. We offer pathways to exciting careers, further education, in-demand skills training, and personal enrichment.

Daytona State has distinguished itself with high quality academic programs, outstanding faculty dedicated to teaching, and small class sizes that ensure our students get the attention and support to help them succeed.  

In fact, our latest high mark came from U. S. News & World Report’s 2013 ranking of online programs across the nation. I’m proud to say that Daytona State earned the No. 2 spot for the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs – a notable achievement that testifies to topnotch faculty, smart technology, and focused student engagement. 

Our students – which number about 30,000 a year – can take advantage of a range of student services and activities that we offer, including national championship athletic teams, an award-winning student newspaper, an active student government association and more than 25 clubs and organizations to enhance the college experience. On our campuses you also will find the internationally recognized Southeast Museum of Photography, a state-of-the-art fitness and aquatic facility and two theaters which host theatrical, musical and dance productions throughout the year. 

I applaud each and every one of our students, from whatever point they are in life, for making the smart choice, for taking the next step toward their goals. 

Let us know if we can help you join in the Daytona State College experience. 


Carol W. Eaton, Ph.D.
