Student Testimonials:

"My biggest value was the experience I had learning and interacting with professionals on Wall Street...This fund was paramount to me attending this event. Without it I wouldn't have been able to attend the G.A.M.E. Forum. I thought it was great that the University gave me funds to attend an event in NYC, especially since there aren't these kind of events or jobs available in Wyoming."

"Throughout this trip, I got the chance to know the scale and history of the company. Eide Bailly is one of the top two CPA firms and serves clients in a variety of industries....I am pretty sure if I did not get this fund, I would not plan to go to that event and I might have lost the chance to take an inside look at the accounting firm and networking with people in the accounting and finance industries."
