SILS Undergraduate Successes and a NEW BSIS Excellence Fund

May 6, 2014

BSIS StudentsAmazing things are afoot at SILS!

 This year, our undergraduate students:
  •  Attended networking events and met with working professionals from the field, 
  •  Had exclusive access to companies in the Research Triangle Park and across the nation, and 
  •  Met with recent alums to discuss how to get the most from the SILS experience. 

 We also had three firsts.
  •  Our undergraduates were recruited by two SILS alumni working at a Fortune 50 company.
  •  Our undergraduates founded a student chapter of Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP).
  •  Our undergraduates applied in record numbers for leadership positions within Information Science Student Undergraduates Empowered or ISSUE (the SILS undergraduate student group).

Alumni and students achieve at high levels - the SILS undergraduate program is a part of that success. And now we have an opportunity to help ensure continued excellence and express our appreciation.

Will you join us and BSIS alumni with a gift today for the SILS BSIS Excellence Fund? 

Click on "Make A Gift" now. By doing so, you can provide SILS with specific resources to keep the undergraduate program competitive - for example, funding for AITP student membership dues. A gift of $30 could pay AITP dues for one year for one SILS undergraduate, which could lead to a competitive job in the future. Each of us can make a unique contribution to this School. Every gift, regardless of size, is valuable.

SILS makes giving easy. Visit our  safe, secure online giving site  to make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift, which is a monthly gift via credit card, bank draft or (if you are a Carolina employee) payroll deduction.    Please give now.
