ANNUAL UNDERGRADUATE SURVEY
Every year the EUB puts together a survey to give the department, faculty, and elite alumni a feel of what us Econ students like, what we don’t like, and what is working. We would really appreciate it if you took the time to take this survey, and make the undergraduate experience better for you and your peers.
Actuary Career Seminar
Saturday, February 18th from 1:00 – 3:00 at the Kenneth Allen Library Auditorium A prominent Econ Alumni (Olga Yang) will be talking with Ms. Hiu Wan Ko about her experiences as an actuary and invites anyone interested to come hear what she has to say. Ms. Ko is an Actuarial Director at Premera and is answering questions about actuary qualifications, career paths, and much much more. Come check it out!
UW Economics Video and Networking Session
The Economics department has launched a Youtube channel, and on Saturday, February 4th from 12-4 p.m. YOU can be on that channel! The Mentorship Committee is working on making some videos for the channel, and wants students to be involved. Come to HUB 307 or 337 and talk to a camera, Econ alumni, and classmates. Here’s your chance to tell the world just how much you love Econ!
Below is a description of the events we regularly host:
Math Review Seminar
At the beginning of each quarter, the EUB puts on a math review seminar with two sessions: one focuses on concepts needed for Economics 200/201 and the other on skills that apply to Economics 300/301. If it has been a long time since you’ve taken a math course or you just need a refresher, this is a quick way to get up to speed.
Here is a link to the Facebook event
UW Econ alumni are invited to share information about their career paths from graduation to present position. This is a great place to get career questions answered and to get advice about job interviews and job search.
The Paul Heyne Lecture
This is a great event to attend if you are thinking about undergraduate research! During this lecture, a university faculty member discusses practical applications of economics through their current research.
Last quarter’s topic was about the Economic implications of Brexit. It was very interesting and a lot of fun, stay tuned for Winter 2017’s topic and speaker information!
Graduate School Seminar
The graduate school seminar, offered during fall and winter quarters, is designed to help students who are interested in or currently applying to graduate school in fields typical of economics majors.
The EUB provides free tutoring hours daily for Econ 200/201 and Econ 300/301. Many tutors are also willing to help with specific 400-level courses that they have taken. See tutoring schedule for more information!
This is the EUB’s quarterly newsletter, written by our very own members. Topics vary, so pick up a copy at the end of each quarter in the main office or read it online!
Annual Departmental Survey
The EUB surveys students in 300 and 400-level courses each year to find out more information about student concerns and trends. Results are available online.
All schedules for events will be sent to the econmajor listserv, as well as being posted on our website and advertised by professors. Keep your eyes out for these great opportunities!
