Omicron Delta Epsilon Honor Society– Epsilon Chapter

Omicron Delta Epsilon is one of the world's largest academic honor societies. 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 , and sponsoring of panels at professional meetings as well as the Irving Fisher and Frank W. Taussig competitions.

Currently, Omicron Delta Epsilon has 681 chapters located in the United States, Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Puerto Rico, South Africa, Egypt, France, Kazakhstan, and United Arab Emirates. With such a broad, international base, chapter activities vary widely, ranging from invited speakers, group discussions, dinners, meetings, etc., to special projects such as review sessions and tutoring for students in economics. Omicron Delta Epsilon plays a prominent role in the annual Honors Day celebrations at many colleges and universities.

The Economics Club

Economics Club serves as a forum for undergraduate students interested in economics. Its activities included regular meetings, seminars, discussions with professional economists, peer advising, closer interaction with the economics department faculty, and other relevant programs.  The Club works to provide a medium through which interested students can discuss matters of economic significance.  Members of the Club actively seek to further the development of systematic analysis of economic phenomena by encouraging business and economic research. The club is designed to enhance discussion of economic and business issues among academic, business, labor and public sectors in the Jackson metropolitan area.  All College of Business majors are welcome to join.

The Investment Club

The investment club is open to all students and the purpose is to enhance the knowledge and financial wealth of its members by developing and executing sound financial decisions. We also promote financial well being through planned activities and service projects. The investment club creates an avenue for students and faculty who want to learn more about the areas of finance, and investments. For the student who wants to get into the stock market but is unsure of how it works, the student wanting to become more financially savvy, or the common student looking for a way to get involved, the investment club is for you. We have several committees dedicated to helping students increase their financial knowledge, gain community service hours and also opportunities for internships and interviews.
