Sarasota, Fla native Alexander Rodman decided he wasn’t quite ready to leave South. After receiving his undergraduate degree in accounting, Rodman came back for one more year to pursue a Master in Accounting in preparation for the CPA Exam. When not in class, Rodman works as a graduate assistant for the Mitchell College of Business and has served as the lead supervisor of the University’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance grant program, VITA, for three consecutive years. While the material is challenging, Rodman has been helped by a supportive network at the Mitchell College of Business. “First I would like to thank Mrs. Tiffany Deroy for teaching a great intro class and for helping me find an interest in accounting. Dr. Terry Grant inspired me to become more involved throughout college, especially with clubs such as Beta Alpha Psi. Dr. James Rich & Dr. Russ Hardin helped me become a leader for the VITA group and were mentors who I can look up to and ask questions.” After graduation, Rodman said he looks forward to starting his career with PwC as an audit associate,” I’m excited to kickstart my career with a top firm, and I feel South has prepared me with the skills and knowledge to help me stand out.”
