That was where Mu Iota Sigma stepped in, enabling the students to get a head start on planning for their careers. Mu Iota Sigma helped MIS students to be better prepared for their future, both in school and out in the job market. The group helped its members with their academics through various methods. In order to be in the group, a student had to maintain a 3.0 GPA overall and a 3.25 in MIS classes. This served as an incentive for the members to keep their grades up. In addition, the group held workshops to get the members through the majors more infamously difficult classes. Mu Iota Sigma also helped its members to be "We're here to look out for the interests of MIS students." - Tom Vu ^ I AGREE A guest speaker discusses strategies for getting into the career of your choice.

At the meetings, various speakers would come to talk about their company and how it was run. "You get to find out first which companies are hiring, how much they pay, etcetera;' said senior Tom Vu, the president of Mu Iota Sigma. The members found these opportunities very useful in planning for their future. "I got to network with more people than I would have on my own;' said senior Johnson Jacob, a committee chair. In addition to the workshops, the members were also able to take tours of some of the companies, to get a feel for way they were run. They were then able to compare the companies and decide what sort of career they would like to undertake. The benefits of membership in the organization were clear. "It has taught me a lot about professionalism, and provided me with some great opportunities for the future;' said Vu. -Ashley Grubbs THINGS FALL APART Senior Bradley Tage shows MIS members parts from inside a computer.
