April 12th marked the date for the annual Fox IT Awards to commemorate outstanding achievement of MIS professionals, students, and professors. It was a fun and fancy evening filled with fabulous food, business professionals, heart-warming speeches… and not to mention the open bar
Even though I’m not an MIS major, I really enjoyed hearing what great accomplishments people have had in the MIS field. One of the recipients of the awards was even a Temple grad which was really exciting!
It was also really awesome to see other students getting awards for really giving college their all. It was super motivational to see how much these student’s have accomplished! It made me want to go home and be productive and study or something (haha).
I even made a new friend at the It Awards. His name is Greg and he is an MIS major as well as a member of QSU (Queer Student Union) an organization on campus. QSU’s office in the village is right across the hall from Habitat’s office so we have actually seen each other quite a few times since the Awards!
I took some video footage of my time at the ceremony and made a short video to highlight what it was like. Unfortunately YouTube took the music off of it because of ‘copyright infringement’ issues, so just pretend you are hearing Vagabond by Wolfmother as you are watching it. Enjoy! =]
My name is Kimberly Stanislaw, I am a junior pursuing a degree in Marketing with a minor in Management Information Systems.
The first time I came to visit Temple, I knew it was the perfect match. There were so many qualities that I was looking for in a college and some how Temple just seemed to have them all. I knew I wanted to live in a city but I didn’t want to be lost in a sea of college students, especially with regards to academics. The best thing about Temple is that it has a small school feel with large school opportunities. With an average class size of only 27, I knew I would be able to get to know those in my classes as well as my professors. On the other side, Temple U serves 23,000 students as undergraduates and can say that one out of every eight people in the city of Philadelphia is a Temple grad, which means we are given amazing opportunities in terms of internships and networking.. These opportunities were just too amazing to pass up, and I had to go to Temple!
I selected MIS 3538 as my last class to complete my MIS minor. It seemed like a really interesting way to complete that segment of my academics. Like every other college student across the country, I am lost without my computer and the internet, so I figured this class would feel less like ‘school’ and more of a discussion about interesting topics. My biggest hope is to walk out of this class with a better understanding of search engine optimization and be able to use it to my advantage in a real world setting.
