On Tuesday February 9, the UNIBusiness Accounting Club hosted the UNI Association of Criminology Students for a lecture and discussion by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Special Agent Scott Irwin (Accounting '99). Special Agent Irwin addressed a crowd of about 80 students and faculty, speaking first about qualifications and steps towards employment with the FBI. It appears a Bachelor's degree in Accounting is an excellent first step towards a career fighting crime in the FBI, along with a minimum of three years professional work experience. In Special Agent Irwin's tenure with the FBI, he has worked not only on issues involving forensic accounting but other personal and property crimes as well.

The UNIBusiness Accounting Club is one of the largest student organizations on campus with over 330 current members. The club provides members with career information, contact with potential employers and recruiters, as well as social interaction with other accounting majors.

The club maintains a website at which maintains the club's calendar of events, photo gallery, firm sponsors, and career links. For more information about the Accounting Club, please contact Alex Merfeld (Director of Communications) at
