We organize various advising events throughout the year that are geared toward helping undergraduate concentrators in economics figure out what to do and how to navigate the department. Past events have included peer mentorship mixers and office hours, internship and career presentations, and panels on thesis writing, undergraduate research opportunities, and graduate school.
We also aim to provide the opportunity for students to get to know the Economics Department through dinners and other events. We host casual dinners with economics professors throughout the year and a larger catered dinner event each semester.
We seek to foster economics education and interest in the wider community. Our flagship event is the Harvard Pre-Collegiate Economics Challenge (HPEC), an economics competition for high school students held each spring. We also organize intercollegiate networking events and mixers bringing together economics students throughout the Boston area.
