the 1973-74 school year the Educational Opportunity Center
(EOC) was established with special state and federal
appropriations to give students an opportunity to receive
instruction and learn individually and at their own speed.
The center was intended to give students the opportunity to
overcome deficiencies in basic skills.
competitive athletics began in 1973, as Dixie College joined the
Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW) and the
Intermountain Association as well. That first year, competition was
held in only basket-ball. However, in 1974 teams were fielded in
both volleyball and softball. The College also finally moved away
from the old campus, when the Annex was abandoned in favor of the
Atkin Building on Industrial Road. This provided additional space
and facilities for Vocational Education Programs such as Aero
Technology, and the Building Trades such as woodworking, masonry,
plumbing, apprenticeship and welding.
