Beyond the Classroom

The Economics Society

The Economics Society is a club made up of economics majors and other students interested in economics. The Society carries out a variety of activities -- intellectual, career-oriented, and social. The Society's activities can provide students with an opportunity to meet one another, as well as to interact with faculty members outside of the classroom.  The Society is more active in some years than in others due to students’ busy schedules.  An active society requires at least a few economics students dedicated to starting things off early in the semester.  If you are interested in pursuing this opportunity, please contact the Faculty Advisor to the Economics Society.

Honors Dinner

Each spring the department invites all junior and senior majors with strong academic records to a dinner to celebrate their achievements. This is a popular event for both students and faculty.
