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. Look for the next review session Fall of 2017!
Economics Class Seminar
Come to Smith 309 on May 9th at 6:30 and learn about all the economics classes UW has to offer! Collectively, the EUB has taken almost all the classes available, so we will be able to give both first and second hand information about the classes. Pizza will also be provided.
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. While the exact room and time have yet to be determined, Jeff Lewis (UW Econ mentor) and Clint George (Econ alum) will be talking about their experiences and tips on May 30th, so plan ahead!
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. This quarter we have Dr.Nives Dolšak discussing the Economics of Climate Change on May 23rd, at 6:00 in BAG 154. After the lecture, stick around for the Social afterwards!
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!
