"As the Officer of Finance and Accounting, I had the incredible opportunity to gain direct experience in accounting and nonprofit reporting. This experience not only solidified my understanding of accounting from the classroom, but also taught me Excel skills that will be critical for any finance career.

 

It's not common that an undergraduate gets the chance to work with accounting software like QuickBooks and use Excel beyond the fraction taught at school. I'm so grateful I had the chance to get such hands-on experience and hone transferable skills!"
