INFORMS student chapter

INFORMS student chapter wins Summa Cum Laude award, again!

The INFORMS student chapter at USF (INFORMS@USF) started its journey to the medal stand in 2009 with a Cum Laude award and then a Magna Cum Laude in 2010. Thereafter, for the years 2011 till 2023, INFORMS@USF has been awarded the Summa Cum Laude honor ten (10) times, while the remaining three years USF chapter remained on the podium receiving one of the other two awards. This is a remarkable performance streak, and the past and present members of INFORMS@USF should be immensely proud. The chapter holds many distinguishing activities including Del and Beth Kimbler Lecture Series, training workshops for undergraduates on software like Python, R, MATLAB, and CPLEX, AI/ML Club, assisting the department on faculty hiring, community engagement through organizations like Metropolitan Ministries, and international potluck lunch fundraiser. Above all, INFORMS@USF fosters an environment of nurturing and camaraderie among all students.
