The Connecticut Chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE) is soliciting new members! ODE is an international honor society for economics. Founded in 1963 as the result of a merger between two honors societies – Omicron Delta Gamma and Omicron Chi Epsilon – it is one of the largest honor societies with over 696 local chapters.
The objectives of Omicron Delta Epsilon are: recognition of scholastic attainment and the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics; the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics within colleges and universities, and among colleges and universities; the publication of its official journal, The American Economist; the sponsoring of panels at professional meetings; and the ODE Graduate Research and Undergraduate Research Award competitions.
Undergraduate students who meet the following criteria are encouraged to apply:
- Completion of 12 semester hours of economics courses
- Attainment of at least a “B” average in economics courses and an overall “B” average in all classes.
Students do not have to be economics majors, but must have a genuine interest in economics in addition to meeting the above requirements.
