ASU accounting students team with pwc to build Habitat for Humanity house
ASU's Department of Information Systems Club (DISC) and Beta Alpha Psi, an honor society for accounting students, are joining together with PricewaterhouseCoopers to make home ownership a reality for one Phoenix family.
The effort, called BuildFusion, is spearheaded by ASU senior David Roman, president of DISC, and will bring the Phoenix accountancy firm together with university students from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sept. 25, to build the home for a family of three. The effort provides an opportunity for all to give back to the community and provide a home for one special family, Roman said.
"As an added bonus, the joint community service project gives students the opportunity to work alongside professionals who may one day be recruiting them," Roman said. "You've heard of making connections on the golf course, well we'll be making them on the rafter beams in a Habitat for Humanity home."
Both DISC and Beta Alpha Psi provide ASU students with career development and leadership skills, and include and advance priorities of community service, ethical, social and public responsibility.
The ASU students are raising money for the BuildFusion project and members of the university community are welcome to contribute. Follow the link below to securely donate through Paypal. The goal is to raise $2,500, but sky's the limit!

Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
