Recently, many of the employees at OIT gathered together for an FHE at the ITB. It was a nice evening, and a lot of fun to boot. The event started at 5:30, with a little time to get settled and eat a picnic dinner. After dinner, everyone joined together to start the family home evening. It was a nice lesson that was perfect for everyone of all ages. After the lesson everyone had fun playing games. For the young children, there were plenty of power wheels to race around in. For people a little older, we had plenty of lawn games as well. After a pleasant evening with friends and colleagues, everyone went home with fun, new memories.
Every great football game starts with a great tailgate party. This year we started celebrating BYU’s homecoming game with our first office tailgate! We grilled polish dogs and shared some football trivia. Even though it was a little chilly, many employees braved the weather to play volleyball, corn hole, and horseshoes. Of course, the best part was going to watch the game afterward. It was a close game, but we managed to come out on top during double overtime. Go Cougs!
The bocce ball tournament is one of the most popular events at OIT, with over 70 participants this year. The competitors come from different departments, and can be a student or a full-time employee. Everyone is welcome to participate. Beginning in June, and lasting until August, employees will play a series of games to see who will emerge as the champion. During this time, everyone will have a chance to meet new people and make new friends. We hope that the team building and unification of OIT are hastened through this event. Let’s not forget, this is the best place to work!
The dust is finally settling. For the last few months, the IT building has been undergoing a humongous construction project. This was due to the steady growth of the organization. During the process, many employees were inconvenienced and had to move spaces and work around temporary closures of rooms in the building. To show our appreciation and gratitude for our employees’ patience during this time we threw a party which included lunch; lots of games, like volleyball and horseshoes; and a chance to socialize with friends and coworkers. Everyone had a great time celebrating together.
It’s Saint Patrick’s Day!
We all know the traditions associated with this holiday. Shamrocks, green, and even looking for a pot of gold. There are a lot of ways to make this day special.
But what better way to celebrate than with a potato bar? To celebrate this holiday, we had a lot of food, fun, and friends to celebrate with. Thank you to everyone that made this a success!
