What is ASA?


EXPOSURE. LEADERSHIP. SERVICE.

 

The Accounting Student Association is an Eller club open to all students who are interested in learning more about business and developing themselves professionally. We meet every other Thursday at 5:00pm in McClelland Hall.


WE NETWORK.
ASA is visited by industry-leading companies (such as Honeywell or Texas Instruments) as well as prominent public accounting firms (such as Deloitte or Ernst & Young). In addition to the guest speakers that present at every meeting, ASA also partners with firms for service events and office visits. 

WE LEARN.
Presenters visit ASA and speak on a variety of accounting and business-related topics in addition to informing the club about their firm and upcoming opportunities for externships, internships, and full-time positions. Attending meetings is a valuable way to learn more about what size firm you are interested in, which line of accounting you want to enter, and whether you are interested in public accounting or the private sector.

WE GIVE BACK.
Each semester ASA is involved in a number of service events where we give back to the college and the community. Additionally, ASA donates $5,000 every year to the accounting department which helps with updating the classroom technology in the accounting lab. Our commitment to excellence motivates us to keep adding value to Eller and the city of Tucson.

WE CREATE COMMUNITY.
ASA hosts socials throughout the semester to encourage our members to get to know each other. We believe it is just as important for students to bond and network with their peers, making contacts and friendships that may last a career. ASA also fosters community by having a club dinner following each meeting that is catered by some of Tucson's most popular eateries.
