Career Fair is Right Around the Corner

Career Fair 2016 DS.jpg

This week is an important week for the Taxation and Accounting students! The long-awaited Taxation & Accounting Career Fair is going to take place on campus on Friday, September 23. This career fair happens once in an academic year here at Golden Gate University, and it’s a great opportunity for our students to move forward in their career.

If you have been preparing for this career fair, you are most likely all caught up with the details and updates about the event. If you haven’t heard of this  opportunity until now, you can stop by the Office of Career Planning for a quick chat or e-mail them with your questions at

News & Updates



It was a warm day last Sunday here in San Francisco! We joined the students, staff and faculty of our community to enjoy the Giants game at AT&T Park. It was delightful to meet some of our new readers and grab a drink with them. Just in case you forgot, you can follow us on our Facebook page here and join the conversation on our group here.

It’s time for another survey! While we’re working on our plans to make the best of the results we gathered from our Gaming Tournament Questionnaire, we wanted to see how many of our readers would be interested in joining us for a hike on a weekend during the Fall ’16 Term. Please contribute above and help us organize a hike for this term!


If you missed last week’s #SocialWednesday post, you might not be familiar with the new faces of our student leadership group. Join us in congratulating this year’s SGA officers! We encourage all students to meet the new officers in person. SGA is the voice of students that are elected by the students who will be here to listen to your thoughts, opinions and concerns for the 2016-17 Academic Term. You can also e-mail them at

BooksSLThe bookshelf down in the Student Lounge was updated recently. These books, as we informed you earlier, are available for you to claim for free. We ask our readers to be mindful and claim them only if you are really interested in or in need of them.

Events to keep an eye on



As we mentioned above, if you are a Taxation or an Accounting student, do not miss out on this once-in-a-year opportunity. RSVP is available for this event; however, there will be a physical check-in table for those who could not register for the event in advance.
