Both the undergraduate and graduate programs of the School of Accounting found themselves in the Top 25 of the latest rankings released by the Public Accounting Report. In a remarkable bit of symmetry, both programs improved to land at No. 22 in their respective rankings. For the Master of Accounting program, the jump was two spots from its No. 24 ranking in 2012, while the undergraduate Accounting program moved up five spots. Among mid-sized Accounting schools—those with between 16 and 21 full-time faculty members—the results are even more impressive, with the MAcc program landing at No. 8 and the undergraduate program finding itself at No. 7.

In a labor of love, The Road Home's winter overflow shelter got an extreme makeover, complete with lilac-painted walls and lots of helping hands.

The home has accommodated up to 300 people in the past, offering families a place to sleep, eat and bathe.
