Omicron Delta Epsilon Honor Society

The Phi chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society in economics, was established at the College in the spring of 1998. Omicron Delta Episilon has among its objectives the recognition of scholastic attainment, the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics, and the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics.

Membership is awarded to undergraduates who have a genuine interest in economics and who have attained an outstanding performance level not only in their economics courses but also cumulatively in all courses.

Dollars & Sense Club

The mission of the Dollars and Sense Club is to expand our knowledge of business and economics, both in the theoretical and practical contexts, enhance student-to-student and student-to-faculty interactions, and to keep students informed about jobs, internships, and graduate school options in the field.

The club members accomplish their mission by networking with alumnae, large corporations and other similar clubs, having various social events and a weekly lunch table, making presentations, having lively discussions, going on field trips, inviting guest speakers, and encouraging members to make innovative suggestions.
