MIS Seniors Celebrate Spring Graduation

This Spring the IM program was excited to welcome many new alumni as 176 students graduated with a BBA in MIS! To celebrate the end of their undergraduate career, the IM Program hosted an MIS Senior Grad Celebration. We invited all graduating seniors to attend the event, catered by delicious Pluckers and Moojo. Besides eating and hanging out with their fellow seniors, graduates got the opportunity to mingle with several of their MIS professors. Professors Prabhudev Konana, Katie Gray, Clint Tuttle, Bruce White, and Ed Doan took the time to reminisce with students over their past 4 years here at McCombs and offer them advice for when they leave the university. As many of you may know, Katie and Clint also received their undergraduate degrees in MIS here at McCombs! Graduates also received a small silver longhorn pin as a token to wear or carry with them in the future.

Students learned about the opportunities they have to remain involved after graduation whether by volunteering to grade 333K projects, helping to recruit students at info sessions, or joining us for the annual Steering Committee meeting. Steering Committee is a great opportunity for alumni to get an update on the program and give their feedback on how it can be improved and updated. Always held on the last Friday in February, mark your calendars because the next meeting will be on February 24, 2017. Congratulations to all our 2016 graduates! Be sure to keep in touch, we know you’ll accomplish great things!
