Omicron Delta Epsilon Honor Society (ODE)

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.
