his fall, more than 500 high school students from across
the state converged on the University of Connecticut
and Quinnipiac University campuses to get a taste of
college life and hear from accounting majors and practicing
CPAs about why the CPA career path is the way to go.
Following breakfast provided by the host college and op-
tional campus tours, the students perked up to the sounds
of a set of classic rock hits by Connecticut's CPA rock band,
The Accounting Crows.
Volunteer speakers then helped students explore the places
the CPA credential can take them, from public accounting
to forensics, the music industry, and more. The prize for a
good question? An Accounting Crows t-shirt, of course!
