More than 50 students attend this semesters' welcome event, the GIS Open House. New and prospective members were able to meet with officers and other members and connect about the organization's plan for the rest of the semester which lines up a host of events geared toward professional development. The purpose of this fraternity is to promote, encourage, and sustain student interest in insurance, risk management, and actuarial science as professions; to encourage the high moral and scholastic attainments of its members; and to facilitate interaction of educational institutions and industry through networking and by fostering research activities, scholarship, and improved public relations.
