Greetings PAS Members!

Upcoming Events

Today and tomorrow we will be holding our general meetings and your attendance at this specific meeting is critical if you would like to do more in PAS.  We will be informing you all of available leadership positions.  Join PAS on the 15th for our first ever sporting event. We will show off our skills in basketball and dodgeball. Then, the last week of April we will be ending big with our Excel workshop and the visit to BKD!  The workshop will have a different instructor this semester. That being said, even if you attended last semester, it is best to take advantage of the new material that this semester has to offer. Make sure you have the visit to BKD on your calendar. PAS wants to make a great impression with the firm to secure on-campus interviewing in the future.  This will be a great opportunity for you and future members.
