BICS Awards 2015


The Best Event award was presented to the Musical Society for CARRIE the Musical. In February many of you were treated to the performances which were hosted over 3 nights in the Curtis Auditorium.  The cast delivered a world class performance, a sell-out event and received standing ovations and accolades.  They impressed most on how they executed their venue planning, production, design, marketing and promotion.  The BICS panel considers the whole event organising process, to be recognised as the best is not just a reflection of the high standard of the performances but also how they co-ordinated and planned the event. Chairperson Aaron Barriscale, 3rd year Theatre & Drama Studies student, accepted the award on behalf of the CARRIE family and in particular acknowledged the support from CIT CSM staff throughout the year.


Megan Cronin, 3rd year Marketing student, was stunned to be announced as Best Individual. Those who know Megan perhaps may not be as surprised with her achievement, her enthusiasm and energy has brought an unmeasurable positive influence to so many of her fello students.  Megan enjoys seeing CIT students getting along together and thrives on the opportunity to provide members with opportunities to socialise and network.  Her achievements over the 3 years has seen the Music Society transform to offer an outlet for students across all campuses, master of ceremonies at many events, gaining photography skills and supporting many other societies and college events.  When accepting the award Megan was quick to thank her fello societies committee members and in particular the Music society committee who’s teamwork earned them the CIT Society of the Year award.


Best Fresher Stephanie Fogarty, 1st year Community Development student, took the lead role as Chairperson of the LGBT society and has been pivotal in leading what was described as an unprecedented improvement in the societies activities. The society ensures CIT is a welcoming place for all its members and provides a platform for awareness and education for the Society’s members and the general student populace. Stephanie is much admired, esteemed and appreciated by her peers. When accepting the award Stephanie was very grateful of the support and opportunities that CIT has given her.


The Irish Red Cross Society and Music society also represented CIT at the event and did us proud.
