WIRED IN Anime Movie Night GBM!

Yesterday, WIRED IN members engaged in a fun activity of watching the anime movie “Spirited Away.” This is a childhood favorite of many and it was a nice refresher to rewatch or show the movie to those who haven’t seen it before. There was also food provided to students who attended the meeting and it turned out to be a great time in the Cybertorium.

Welcome the New 2019-2020 Executive Board!

A new school year means a new executive board has been elected. Below are the current WIRED IN 2019-2020 Executive Board Members and their Bios!:

Alair Moody-Daniels – President – Senior (2nd to Left)

Hi everyone!

My name is Alair Moody-Daniels, a senior studying IST with applied option Integration & Application (ITINT). I am excited to be WIRED IN’s President for 2019-2020 academic school year. I am enthusiastic to bridge my passion for technology with WIRED IN’s mission to promote diversity and inclusion. I am eager to serve my community as a positive social and academic role model. I have spent my time at PSU mentoring peers, volunteering at local church communities, competing in case competitions and co-leading the Future Forum committee. This summer I had an amazing opportunity to intern with PricewaterhouseCoopers as a Financial Technology Consultant. I have traveled through several states implementing new innovative technology solutions for financial institutions. Stop by WIRED IN to learn more about our experiences and to share yours. See you soon!

Hi everyone! My name is Sydney Boyd and I’ll be serving as your 2019/2020 Vice President. I’m currently a Junior in the Design and Development option. I’m involved in ISTCG Customer Experience club, and I’ve also had the amazing opportunity to work at Leidos for my summer internship. On a more fun note, I love being out and doing things with friends like trying new foods, going to the movies, or just hanging out. If you see me around campus, want to hang out, or have some great ideas for WIRED In, please don’t be afraid to say something!
