Each fall, CTCPA engages Campus
Representatives ("Campus Reps")
at Connecticut colleges and uni-
versities to act as CTCPA liaisons
at their respective campuses.
These students get the word out
about CTCPA Student membership
and opportunities available in
the CPA profession, arrange for
speaking engagements for CTCPA
members and staff, and hold
CTCPA-sponsored charity drives at
their schools.

Member of Accounting Society
What was your proudest moment
with your accounting society this
year?
My proudest moment was promoting
the CTCPA's community service event
with Junior Achievement.
Did you have any favorite speakers
this year?
I thought CTCPA Academic and
Career Coordinator
Alicia Strong
did a great job answering students'
questions about the CPA Exam at an
accounting society meeting.
How has the CTCPA helped you?
The CTCPA has helped me become
more familiar with CPA requirements
and the accounting profession in
general.
What's one thing CTCPA members
would be surprised to know about
life as a college student?
College is a lot more than attending
classes and getting good grades. It's
about getting engaged with the com-
munity and having a positive impact
inside and outside of class.

Member of Accounting Club, Beta
Alpha Psi, and Phi Beta Lambda
What was your proudest moment
with your accounting student
activities this year?
In Beta Alpha Psi, we collected
nonperishable food for the victims
of Hurricane Sandy. It was great to
be able to come together as a group
to make a difference to those who
suffered from these unusually harsh
circumstances.
What are your plans for next year?
This summer I will be an audit intern
with KPMG in the Stamford office. I
will return to campus for my senior
year and sit for the first of the actuarial
exams. Then I will prepare for
the GMATs, as I will stay at Fairfield
to obtain my master's degree and
become 150-ready.
