“Who knew accounting could be fun?”
This comment was overheard from many Scottsdale Community College Business School students following the first Accounting Final Review Game Night on April 25.
Eighty-six students checked in and were provided a passport to stamp when activities were completed. Students who filled their passport got to spin the wheel for prizes, which included gift certificates to the campus bookstore. Accounting instructors and tutors facilitated the tables while other Business School faculty and staff helped run the event.
The room was set up casino-style with each five interactive tables featuring a specific review topic or class. Interactive tables included flashcards, journal entries, trial balance, financial statement and posting to T-accounts.
Three additional tables specific for ACC 111, 112, and 212 had 30 to 40 multiple choice questions on a PowerPoint presentation. Students held up paddles (a, b, c, d) to display their answer and received a stamp when correct.
Pizza, water, cookies, and candy were provided during breaks and the evening ended with an accounting Bingo exercise.
“Accounting Game Night was a vision we had for years,” said Business School Chair and Accounting Professor Sue Sandblom. “Our new building provided the ideal opportunity and the students appreciated the evening. They provided valuable feedback (mainly wanting Accounting Game Night to be longer and happen more often). Plans are already in place for next semester.”
