Professional Associations

As the largest club on campus, the RFA leverages resources and our alumni base to provide a value-added experience for students interested in all areas of finance.

The club that excites me most is a toss-up between the Consulting Group and the Beer group. One is my passion in life, and the other because it sounds like a great way to make connections. You decide which is which.
