I am involved in a few things on campus and I like to be dedicated to only a few things because I like being committed to what I’m involved in. It’s good to pick about 3 organizations/activities (depending on the level of time commitment each takes) that interest you.
I joined Beta Alpha Psi, beginning of my sophomore year and have really enjoyed everything about it. Beta Alpha Psi is a National Honors Organization for Accounting, Finance, and MIS majors. This organization focuses on community service, social events, and of course professional events. Beta Alpha Psi does a great job making all events revolve around networking too where a lot of the community service and social events have company members hang out and volunteer with members.
The most well-known event Beta Alpha Psi puts on is Meet the Firms where about 50 firms are available to network with only DePaul students. In the past, it was held at the Congress Hotel, but this year it was held at the Walnut Room at Macy’s where it allowed more firms to fit in the venue than in the past. The event also has a large turnout and many business students benefit from the networking Meet the Firms allows.
I am currently an officer within the club, as Co-Vice President of Communications, where the other Co-Vice President and I create social and community service events for members. We’ve done dinners, outdoor games, and scavenger hunts for our social events. For community service, we volunteer at Junior Achievement, community races and have done book packing with KPMG.
