Accounting Is My Major Program
Inspires Next Generation
Nearly 300 Connecticut high school students got a hands-
on look at life as a college accounting major at this fall's
CTCPA Accounting Is My Major (AIM) event series.
Special thanks to the University of Hartford, University
of Connecticut, and University of New Haven for hosting
the programs and providing students with the opportunity
to speak with faculty, students, and alumni about the ac-
counting profession, internships, college preparation, and
more. Each session also included an interactive college
accounting activity, breakfast and lunch provided by the
hosting school, campus tours, and giveaways.
AIM will return this spring with events hosted by Post
University and Southern Connecticut State University.
