INFORMS Bowling Semester Kickoff!

Thank you to INFORMS Student Chapter, UIC for contributing this post.

INFORMS – UIC chapter kicked off 2012 with a “Bowling event” for MIS  (Master of Science in Management Information Systems) students and alumni.  The event started with a networking session with the alumni and professors. The air was nostalgic for the alumni, as they met the current students, and shared advice regarding future career and professional prospects. Alumni also shared their university experience with the students, which was informative and fun to hear. Professor Ranga and Professor Sid also joined in the festive atmosphere with alumni and students.

Going for a strike!!

Networking with fellow students and alumni.

The bowling event started at 6:00pm, and everyone was prepped for the event in their bowling gear. The alumni and students formed teams of 5 – 6 players.  It was finally the time that everyone was waiting for…. spins, spares and strikes were all that mattered now!!  The evening was amazing – networking, making new friends, and enjoying the bowling competition with great pizzas & sodas!

The INFORMS team would like to thank the alumni who took time out of their busy schedule to join and interact with the students. We would also like to thank Professor Ranga and Professor Sid for joining us for this great event.    INFORMS- UIC Chapter looks forward to bringing more fun packed social events to the students this year!
