SIS thanks ALCOA North America, FedEx Ground, and Pittsburgh CyberConXion for their gracious support of the various events at i-fest.pitt.edu.  These sponsors are helping SIS to raise awareness of our academic programs and the career opportunities available to students who gain their degrees at the School.   Kevin Horner, the CIO of ALCOA North America will be the keynote speaker for the i-fest luncheon on Thursday, November 9th.

Since i-fest ’05 was such a resounding success, many ’06 events will remain the same.  Don’t miss the Gaming Tournament, the Poetry Slam, the Poster Competition, the i-fest luncheon and keynote speaker, or the IS Fair at the Litchfield Towers. Last year, the i-fest event drew more than 350 students to the IS Fair in the Litchfield Towers – this year, students can enter drawings for prizes such as USB drives, Ipods and more! More than 50 SIS students learned a great deal at the Steps To Success event in 2005 – the 2006 event will provide you with an opportunity to network with leading Information Professionals from our region’s most prestigious companies.  The Fantastic, Amazing, Great Race was such a fun event that led teams of two all over the City of Pittsburgh in their quest --  more people can participate this year, in an effort to win Xbox 360s.
