Current Accounting Students
(it's not all about the books)
|SBU Accounting's annual spring trip to BKD in 2012 included a trip to the bowling alley rather than the usual Springfield Cardinals game (see, accountants can be flexible and creative, too!).|
|Every year, Mr. Clark treats the auditing class to a pancake and sausage breakfast. Katelynn Hill Lomax and Justin Wessels enjoy "seconds".|
|Our fall 2010 accounting club field trip took us to the Elliott, Robinson and Company, CPA firm in Springfield.|
|Mr. Clark is a lot safer with his new helmet that he got for Christmas from the 2011 class.|
|Becky Jolliff, Jarrett Finnell, and Matt Hefley enjoyed "giving back" to Mr. Clark all the Wall Street Journals they had used during their SBU career.|
|The SBU Accounting Junior Class of 2010 is happy about finishing Intermediate Accounting II. Many of these students have valuable Accounting internships during the school year.|
|John Wanamaker, Managing Partner at BKD in Springfield, Missouri (10th largest CPA firm in United States) shared with our students about the many services BKD provides.|
|Our SBU Accounting Club takes in a Springfield Cardinals game following our field trip to the BKD CPA firm and dinner at Steak-n-Shake. About 35 SBU Accounting majors attend the annual spring event.|
|ACC majors enjoy Steak-n-Shake before the Cards game (L to R); Nikki Bullard (SBU singer), Adam Lotz (SBU golfer), Matt Hefley (SBU golfer), Katie Ware (SBU Track), graduated Brandon Taylor (SBU Football), and JChelsea Kenney (SBU Volleyball).|

Accounting Fun Day 2008

The Dill Scholarship goes to ONE SBU student who exemplifies scholarship, character, witness, and service and is the largest private scholarship awarded at SBU. Jan finished 3rd in 2007 and 2nd in 2008 in the accounting events at the National Phi Beta Lambda Accounting events.|
|YES! These SBU Warriors survived the Intermediate Accounting Year-- the toughest year in the program And they are still smiling (because when they graduate most of them will have the 150 hours completed to sit for the CPA exam)!|
|Jessica Aug receives her birthday cake from Mrs. Sharla Bailey of the SBU Accounting faculty. Mrs. Bailey bakes each Accounting major a birthday cake during the year----- energy for studying, I'm sure. Jessica passed the CPA exam on her first try (SBU students pass the CPA exam at a faster rate than the national average).|
|Rachel Nibbe (Houston, TX) helps prepare a tax return as a service of our SBU Accounting Club (Delta Epsilong Chi). Each year SBU's Accounting Club assists students and community members in preparing basic federal and state income tax returns. Rachel is now an auditor with Grant Thornton, CPAs, in Dallas.|
