It has been three weeks since the 2023 INFORMS Annual Conference in which the UMass Amherst Student Chapter of INFORMS won the INFORMS Student Chapter Annual Award with the magna cum laude degree, and we briefly highlighted our photoshoot with the award plaque in a previous recap post of the conference. However, looking back at the photos, it would be a shame not to dedicate a separate post on our blog to some of the pictures we took that day. The photoshoot was held on Sunday, October 22, 2023, at the Business Innovation Hub at the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. First and foremost, here is a close-up picture of the plaque:
Here are a couple of pictures of our former and current officers, Paola Furlanetto, Dana Hassani, Busra Karkili, Semih Boz, Vivian Nwadiaru, Yiwen Wang, Josh Gladstone, and Yukti Kathuria, who have all played an essential role in winning the award, along with our faculty advisor, Professor Anna Nagurney:
And what is a photoshoot with an award plaque if it is all serious and official! So here is a picture highlighting the joy that our officers and members felt by bringing the award back home to Amherst:
Finally, as always, we encourage you to keep updated on our blog posts for more coverage as we continue to showcase all our exciting activities and events.
