Accounting majors aren't just calculators and spreadsheets.  There are a lot of exciting opportunities available to accounting majors in the workforce.  Accounting Day gives students who have not declared a major the opportunity to see inside the major, talk with faculty, accounting professionals and students, to discover all that accounting can offer.

Accounting Day is open to all business freshmen and sophomores.  Dress is casual, with the exception of the Freshmen/Sophomore Meet the Firms event.  For Meet the Firms, the dress is business casual.

Registration for the lunches closes on February 9; registration for all other activities closes on February 14.
