VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota’s Beacom School of Business fraternity Beta Alpha Psi recently hosted a fundraising event for students to network with professionals from regional firms.

The business fraternity hosted the event Sept. 22 at The Bluffs Golf Course in Vermillion. Representatives from Deloitte, Eide Bailly LLP, Ketel Thorstenson LLP and POET attended. These firms are actively involved in recruiting accounting students on campus for their internships.

“The golf outing made for a unique opportunity to interact with USD recruiters in a more casual environment,” said Dalton Hoekstra, Beta Alpha Psi VP of finance. “This golf outing was a success, so we are looking into hosting another in the future.”
