During the Spring of 2016, I attended IT awards. This event is interesting for a student because it is a great opportunity to not only network with other students, but also network with alumni who are currently workers. I was able to network with my fellow classmates who I usually do not speak to in class, as well as get to know other members of the MIS community. I also was able to talk with the alumni and give them my information so we could connect with each other in LinkedIn. Overall, the IT awards is a great place to see the accomplishments of other individuals and encourage MIS students to keep up their career path. In addition, what I got from attending this event was a better understanding of the MIS community, meeting past and current MIS students, and accomplishments from different professors and alumni.
