While it might still feel like summer outside, pumpkin spice lattes are in at Starbucks and the first week of the fall quarter at Seattle U is officially underway. As a new MPAC grad student, I can already tell this year is going to be a totally different experience than my undergrad years here at SU. Transitioning to only having night classes is going to mean sleeping in, adjusting to doing homework during the day,and I can already forsee myself becoming a regular at Subway and Yoshino’s Teriyaki.
I graduated with my undergrad accounting degree in June of this year. Being a member of the SU swim team for four years, my undergrad years consisted (for the most part) of studying, swimming and sleeping. After graduation in June, I interned at public accounting firm Ernst & Young in the audit practice. Ernst & Young was an amazing experience and while I am excited to have another year of college, I am anxious to start studying and sitting for the CPA exam in January and I am also looking forward to entering the public accounting world upon graduation.
Since I am a newbie grad student, I am open to any suggestions anyone might have to conquering the night school schedule, the best ideas for home packed dinners that I can eat in class, and learning how to ease myself into drinking coffee!
