First-year Accounting and Finance Living-Learning Community

Join the Accounting and Finance Living-Learning Community and live with peers who share your drive for success and interest in accounting and financial management.

In addition to living with and learning from your peers, you will also have support from your Peer Leader – an upper-year student who has taken similar courses and can connect you with the people and resources you need to succeed.

Your Peer Leader will also organize programs that will enhance your in-class learning and help you reach your fullest potential as a student and an aspiring professional.
