Accounting Student Organizations
The Department of Accounting prides itself on the two student organizations it sponsors.
Beta Alpha Psi is the national honors accounting fraternity. Membership is based on a student's accounting grade point average. The local chapter, Zeta Pi, offers on-campus professional programs, field trips to corporations, service projects, and the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.

The Management Accounting and Auditing Club is open to any interested accounting student.
