College of Business students have organized several business-related clubs.
Accounting Society has three components: integrity, professionalism, and character. We uphold each of these components by learning and doing. Integrity is an essential function needed for the professional accounting world. Professionalism is taught by our biweekly meetings. The meetings prepare the students on how to act and dress in the accounting profession. Character is learned not taught. We have a requirement of community service. Accounting Society believes that community service enables good character building. As a result, many of the members participate in Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) throughout the IRS in the spring.
Our purpose is to expose members to career and educational opportunities in the agriculture industry while creating a network among key stakeholders.
The objective of the Information Systems Society Club is to inform, innovate, engage, and educate students and society about information systems. We organize events that allow our students to learn about information systems discipline and understand career choices related to it. The club also provides opportunities for the students to exercise their creativity, education, and knowledge related to information systems and technology in the form of various events. Our goal is to reach out to the local businesses, educational institutions, and general people to spread knowledge regarding system, technology, and analytics.
