We organized a successful career fair,
hosting 25 different firms and bring-
ing several hundred accounting and
finance students in to meet the firms.
Did you have any favorite speakers
this year? If so, who and why?
A speaker from PwC taught us about
corporate responsibility and sus-
tainability and how accountants are
working on ways to measure the
impact that firms have on their
environment and community. It
sounded like a fresh new direction
for the profession to build upon,
especially with the growing interest in
climate change and "going green."

Yes, Beta Alpha Psi held several com-
munity service days. We participated
in "JA in a Day," a diabetes walk, and
we volunteered with Guard Dogs,
which is an on-campus safe rides
service. We also volunteered to help
with the CTCPA Careers Conference,
which was held at UConn, for high
school students interested in busi-
ness and accounting.
What are your plans for next year?
After graduation, I will start taking the
CPA Exam and then begin working
full-time.
