What do you get when you add prospective students, McIntire faculty, and M.S. in Accounting students?  Meet McIntire.

The first ever Meet McIntire two-day event was launched this past November.  Sixteen prospective students from across the country were immersed into the life of an MSA  student with interactive classroom sessions, an enthusiastic student panel, and an evening spent with their gracious student hosts.

Weekend Roadtrips

This is Mandy’s first time as a full-time student in the United States and she is often “out of town” exploring her new home.  Sha recently caught her between classes to share her adventures. 

Q: What has been your favorite “road trip” so far?

Explore Charlottesville: The Monticello Wine Trail

winery msaDid you know the founder of the University of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson, was also a wine enthusiast and vintner? He was a pioneer of Virginia’s winemaking efforts and the inspiration for the creation of the Monticello Wine Trail. Featuring 30 wineries in the Charlottesville area, the Trail is a great resource to explore local vineyards, enjoy stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and spend quality time with classmates and friends. (Pictured here:  M.S. in Accounting students at Pippin Hill Farm and Vineyard.)

The combined graduate student councils of the M.S. in Accounting and M.S. in Commerce programs hosted an after-hours mixer on the Corner. Students relieved some midterm stress by hanging out and socializing over free food.

 Students enjoyed a welcome afternoon break in the graduate lounge with a Cake Pop Social, featuring orange and blue cake pops that included flavors like red velvet and lemon! The event was sponsored by the graduate programs office and graduate student life.
