The Acadia Co-op Program has expanded my horizons greatly. As a future CPA candidate, I’ve gotten top-level public service experience through a work term at Deloitte and powerful industry experience while working for Imperial Oil - both in the accounting field. These positions have allowed me to gain crucial experience and meaningful connections in the world of professionals, even before completing my BBA degree. It’s tough to imagine a better way to set yourself up for a career while still in school  —Dan Luton (’19)
