In addition to numerous curriculum-related events and activities, Massey students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of in-house student organizations such as the Massey Graduate Council, Massey Golf Network, Massey Milers Club (running), Beta Alpha Psi (national accounting honorary), Beta Gamma Sigma (national business honorary), and a host of volunteer service opportunities (e.g., Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Martha O'Bryan Center, etc.).
Beta Alpha Psi
Beta Alpha Psi is an international honorary organization for undergraduate and graduate accounting, finance and information systems majors. Membership in the Beta Alpha Psi honor society provides opportunities for continued growth in your chosen field. Members are required to be active participants. Belmont's chapter expects each member or pledge to average 10 hours of participation per semester (measured in 50 minute increments). Of those 10 hours, a minimum of 3 hours should be in professional activities (attending speaker events or getting training) and a minimum of 3 hours should be in service activities. Both speakers and service opportunities are designed to enhance your education and experience. Service activities may include tutoring, working in the accounting clinic, participating in the IRS program assisting with tax return preparation (VITA) or participating in community service.
