Speaker events involve our corporate partners coming to Grainger to speak about what their company does, what they do at the company and opportunities for internships and post graduation positions. Dress code for these events is business casual.

Community service events involve FIS giving back to the Madison area. Past events include can drives, Arboretum cleanup and volunteering at the Madison farmers market.

FIS social events involve club members getting together and doing something fun. In the past, we have gone to Brewers games as well as team building games.

Segment program events are designed to assist with professional development. Past events include, LinkedIn advice, dinner etiquette and interviewing tips.
