The accounting club gave me relationships and opportunities I would not have had otherwise. Connecting with other students gave me the chance to compare notes, study, and commiserate with people with similar class schedules and interests.

My UAS Experience

As a distance student, it would have been easy for me to get my degree with minimal interaction with my professors and fellow students. Since there was no face-to-face, I knew few people, knew even fewer people by sight, and didn’t have any sort of support network or professional contacts. Enter the UAS accounting club [SEA-P.A.]. The accounting club made it easier to be part of both the UAS and accounting communities, and it was also fun. Anyone who says accountants are boring should spend a little time at a SEA-P.A. meeting! The accounting club gave me relationships and opportunities I would not have had otherwise. Connecting with other students gave me the chance to compare notes, study, and commiserate with people with similar class schedules and interests. Connecting with my professors gave me the opportunity to ask questions about accounting as a career and to take advantage of their wealth of experience and knowledge. One of my professors recommended an internship that she thought I would be a good fit for (the first time I’d met her in person, no less), which led me to my current full-time position.
