The Department of Economics held an initiation ceremony to Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE), the International Economics Honor Society, on Friday, April 4. The society initiated four new ODE members with an honor cord that may be worn at graduation as well as a certificate of membership. The new ODE members are Jon Hampton, Jennifer Moore, Zachary Turk and Timothy Wanless.
Undergraduate candidates for election to membership in ODE must have an overall GPA of at least 3.0 with at least 12 credits in economics with a B-average or better and have a class ranking in the upper third of economics majors.
The Department of Economics at Boise State University established the Beta Chapter of ODE in Idaho in 1976. ODE’s mission is to encourage excellence in economics. Membership in ODE confers recognition of scholarly achievement in economics, the opportunity to publish in The American Economist, the opportunity to participate in academic meetings sponsored by ODE and the opportunity to compete for The Frank W. Taussig Article Award — the award given to the best article submitted by an undergraduate member of ODE.
Congratulations to the new members of Omicron Delta Epsilon!
