Purpose

The UWG Accounting Club is organized by students for the purpose of providing those with an interest in accounting the opportunity to learn more about the profession.

Our goal is to provide information about the field of accounting and the alternatives within it. We do this through academic and social activities. There are functions each semester including: Speakers to introduce you to the many careers that accounting majors can follow such as those in industry, academia or with public accounting firms, as well as seminars on career development.

The officers of the Accounting Club invite you to get involved! The Accounting Club is a club for all class levels (freshman and sophomores are encouraged to join)!  Membership in the club entitles you to attend the Accounting Club Awards Banquet free of charge held each spring semester where scholarships are awarded along with a meal and guest speaker. 

"When the book lies open in front of you and you look at the book (not the book at you) then the side where you have your heart is the left or the Debit side. The side away from your heart is the right side and is called Credit."
