Who Likes a Good Competition?


Since the very first day we announced GGU Social, we have been passionately promoting our slogan “by students, for students”Our most important mission is to help you deliver your thoughts and ideas to the GGU Community, and ultimately make our environment a better, more fun an entertaining place to live in. We have been asking for your suggestions and feedback since the first day GGU Social launched; but today, we are here to ask you a different question.

We have been planning on hosting something fun on campus, something that was not done within the GGU premises before. Do you like games? Do you like a good, friendly competition? Answer the two question survey below to help us make our minds!

The tournament will have a grand prize (not a t-shirt), and the entries will be free; however, limited. While this thought process is still a work-in-progress, we thought it’s finally time to share you what we have been hiding up our sleeves!

With hoping that this got you a little excited about what’s to come… Let’s get back to our #SocialWednesday tradition and talk about this week’s featured club.

GGU Social presents…

GGU Social Club Taxation

This week’s featured club is Golden Gate University’s Taxation (Tax) Club. Here’s how they define their community:

“Our group was formed to provide a link between current GGU tax students and the professional tax community. There is an abundance of opportunity in the Bay Area tax community, from the large accounting firms (right across the street), to the boutique firms, start-ups, and corporations that thrive in and around San Francisco. Our aim is to be a resource for students looking for both career opportunities and career development. We are working to provide a variety of events, such as networking events and forums with local tax speakers.

If you are interested in joining our group or would like to be added to our e-mail list, please e-mail us at Taxclub@umail.ggu.edu. In addition, you can join us on the GGU app under “Tax Club.” You can find the GGU app in the itunes store or through the Google Play Store. We look forward to hearing from you!”
