Humans of the U: Daniel Call

“I came to the U because all of my family went to the U, and I wanted to continue that legacy. I also really like the U’s business school, so it was a great fit for me.

I am studying accounting. I took Intro to Accounting last semester and during that course, we had to complete a very frustrating group project. However, at the end of the day, after working on this project for hours, I still loved accounting. I figured if I liked accounting so much after completing a tough project, then it would be a good career for me. I like how accounting adds value to people’s lives. I really want to help people save money for themselves and their businesses.

I am a member of both of the U’s accounting clubs and I am also part of the Latter-day Saint Student Association’s (LDSSA) Freshman Welcoming Committee. We plan activities where first-year students can come and meet each other. I love being a part of these groups and all the different people I’ve met because of my involvement. It’s enriching to have opportunities where you can help others and create a community where you can also seek help.

One of my best memories from my time at the U is participating in the Business Scholars Program and taking a trip to Chicago with my cohort. We did a lot of fun things together and really bonded over that experience. I like getting to be a part of groups and solving problems with multiple people.

When I finish my undergraduate degree, I am planning on getting my master’s degree at the U, so I will be here for a few more years. At that time, I want to get more involved in the accounting clubs and be a part of leadership. I really appreciate the other students who have given me pointers and told me about their experiences. I want to do that for other students at the U.”
