New `Accounting Is My Major' Events Give High
Schoolers a Firsthand Look at College Accounting
Post University October 1
TCPA's popular new Accounting Is My Major (AIM)
events were created to give high school students a
real, hands-on taste of life as a college accounting
major. Held at three colleges around the state, the
interactive programs each included a sample college class
led by a professor at the host school, panel discussions
on accounting internships and the college experience, a
business communication seminar, and more. Students
enjoyed complimentary breakfast snacks during registration
and lunch courtesy of each host university.
