I-Spot: Why I Serve

"From my first experience with the Professional Accounting Council, I was very taken with the organization and impressed with the partnership of the council and the Department of Accounting.

Together, we strive toward a common goal: to make this department the best place for students studying accounting and how we can make them successful."
