I have attached a copy of our 2013 Accountancy Weekend Brochure. I hope that you will be able to join us at this annual event, scheduled for April 25-27, 2013. The Patterson School of Accountancy Honors Banquet will take place on Thursday, April 25, at 5:30 p.m. Earlier on Thursday (at 1:30 p.m.), distinguished accountancy alumnus and Hall of Fame member, Lucian Minor, will be recognized as the Lucian Minor Residence Hall is dedicated in his honor. For Friday, April 26, we have put together an excellent continuing education program that will be interesting and informative. In addition, the weekend is full of other activities that you will enjoy, including the annual Double-Decker Festival on the Oxford Square, as well as a three game SEC baseball series versus Kentucky. Please mark your calendar and join us.
I would also like for you to be aware that the Patterson School of Accountancy Beta Alpha Psi Chapter
is hosting events on May 2 and 3. There will be a spring "Meet the Firms" event scheduled for Thursday,
May 2 at 4:00 p.m. on campus. In addition, the annual BAP golf tournament will be at the Ole Miss Golf
Course on Friday, May 3. Beta Alpha Psi is hosting the tournament to raise funds for student activities
and travel. If you would like to participate by sponsoring a team or playing, please contact Dr. J Shaw at 662-915-5446 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The events on May 2 and 3 will be an excellent opportunity for you to interact with some of our best undergraduate and graduate students, and we hope to see you there.
As always, I would like to express my deep appreciation to you for your support. The faculty and staff
are committed to providing the best learning atmosphere possible for our students. This would not be
possible without your help. Please visit us at your earliest convenience.
