Alumni\Student Event - A fun time

Wow! What a great time everyone had at our 3rd Annual Alumni/Student Interview and Resume Tips meeting on Tuesday, April 13th. We were able to let everyone see some of our new facilities such as our new server room and talk about our future plans for our Hardware/Networking lab. We also were able to show the access to NACELink, a job search feature supported by USF’s Career Development and available for use by both students and Alumni.

Of course, the alumni were able to offer great insight into what employers are looking for when students go after those first jobs. They helped students think about those first job interviews, questions to ask and handling the tricky interview questions. Students started thinking about how they could use other volunteer activities or involvement in sports to help them standout when applying for jobs.

Because we like to have our alumni involved in our celebrations, we also took the opportunity to induct our four newest members into the Computer Science Honor Society, Epsilon Delta Pi. The 2010 inductees were Larissa Kries, Nicholas Morris, Michael Murray, and Caleb Piggott. To be eligible for the Honor Society a student must have a 3.2 GPA, 75 credits earned, and a minimum of 3 upper division Computer Science courses completed. We also did an informal awarding of the Meritorious Service Award to Michael Murray, and the Joan Nahas Ramuta Award to Larissa Kries. The formal awards will be presented at the Honors Convocation.

We’ll keep rolling this along, so plan on the early April next year!
