Host a Social

“Social” is a broad term for various types of relationship-building activities and/or events. Hosting a social is a great way to meet many students in a single setting. Socials can range from a drop-in meeting to large themed events. For a list of common venues (to fit all social types) and a calendar of available dates and times, visit the following pages:

Be a Guest Lecturer

Guest lecturing in accounting courses is a great way to reach prospective interns and employees. To facilitate guest lecture opportunities, you are welcome to reach out directly to professors listed in the faculty directory linked below. The best time to contact professors is before the start of a new semester when they are planning their syllabus (early August for fall and early January for spring). If you do not have a pre-existing relationship with a faculty member and need an introduction, please contact the BAP faculty advisor (Colby Lakas).
