We will be hosting a networking event with TAG (Tutors and Graders) for our weekly meeting on Tuesday, 2/8 @ 6:30pm in the Alumni Hall at the Mosher Alumni House! The UCSB Tutors & Graders (TAG) program allows undergraduate students the unique opportunity to work with professors to teach sections, grade exams, and conduct their classes. Members of the TAG Program are able to form close connections with accounting professors and build a network with some of the top students in the major. This is a great chance to learn about how to get involved with TAG, connect with other accounting students, and learn about their professional accounting experiences (internships, recruitment, being a tutor or grader for professors, etc.).
*P.S. There will be Panda Express for those who sign up by 6:00pm on Monday, 2/7! It will be served at the deck, right outside the Alumni Hall!*
