Automotive Orientation Day (AOD) is held every March and is hosted by the Automotive Technology Department. About 35-40 automotive business men and women from all over the United States come to visit with automotive majors during formal sessions in the morning and informal sessions in the afternoon. The morning session consists of industry representatives participating in a panel that allows students to ask questions and receive answers. The afternoon session consists of industry booths creating a mini career fair. AOD is held in the Kansas Technology Center from 8:00am to 3:00pm.
