Accounting and Finance Club
The Accounting and Finance Club
provides a forum for students to socialize while exploring topics related to
finance and accounting. The club provides networking opportunities with alumni
and business leaders, guest speakers and field trips, including an annual trip
to New York to tour the New York Stock Exchange and visit with international
accounting and finance firms.
In addition, the club looks for ways to
integrate the mission of Salve Regina into its activities. In past years, the
club has offered area high school students budgeting assistance, participated
in fundraisers for the American Cancer Society and supported the Special
Olympics. Because the club is run by students for students, they have
opportunities to develop their leadership skills while creating a club that is
uniquely their own.
