Description of Regular Meetings/Activities

The MIS Club holds weekly meetings in which company representatives present current IT projects being undertaken within their organizations. Each club meeting is catered with local cuisine (Hickory Park, Buffalo Wild Wings, etc.) Any student of any major is welcome to attend their first meeting for free.

Description of Special Events

Each semester we hold the MIS Club Career Night the night before the Business Career Fair. At this event, ~40 companies seeking IT interns and full-time hires attend to form a mini career fair, providing an excellent opportunity for students to network with recruiters in a more relaxed setting. In addition, the MIS Club hosts a semi-annual club field trip. On these field trips, companies open their doors to the members of the MIS Club, after which we have a more informal club social in the trip city. This is yet another great networking opportunity for members.
