I did not go to the IT awards this year because of class and work. I am usually in class or working during my off times. I work at a sushi restaurant on South Street and my shifts are pretty long. I work from 11:30 – 10pm and 11pm on weekends so I don’t have time to take off for stuff unless its really important, like me winning an award.
I thought I could still comment on the IT awards because I did attend the year before when I first considered whether I would actually go for a dual major. I attended last year and honestly the thing is like any awards I have been to. I guess It is very similar to the Gamma one that they host every year. It is a great time to recognize people who have done an outstanding job and to just get people together for a good time. A keynote speaker is usually there to give a nice speech and then awards to recognize the hard work of people in the program. I think it’s a great idea, it gives something for people to strive towards. My group recently won a case contest for our capstone class and it felt good to get recognized for all the hard work we put into it.
Good job to everyone who won awards, I am sure they all deserved it.
