The Accounting Society is an organization made up of mostly Accounting majors. Our goal is to get students familiarized with the field and the opportunities available for graduates. We try to meet our goal through hosting luncheon meetings with guest speakers from our respective field, by going on various trips to see area accounting firms, and by inviting campus recruiters to our meetings. We try to help students connect with potential employers and internship opportunities. The Society also participates in numerous philanthropic events, helping students meet their community service requirement. On a lighter note, the Society has an annual holiday party and an end of the year party. We also try to put together a trip to Boston annually to see the city, an accounting firm, and meet fine arts requirements. Overall, the Accounting Society gives students a chance to get to know their peers and contribute to the campus community.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-governmental, non-profit organization devoted to building "simple, decent, and affordable" housing. Homes are built using volunteer labor and are sold at no profit for families in need. Habitat has a collegiate challenge where they ask college students to participate in an alternative spring break and volunteer their time to help build these affordable homes. The Habitat for Humanity group at Husson participates in the collegiate challenge. In 2009 the group traveled to Davidson, NC with seven students and an advisor. Since then, the group has steadily grown and traveled to such locations as, St. Joseph, MO and Coatesville, PA. Plans are currently underway for the spring 2012 trip to Buffalo, NY with a side trip to New York City.
