It's no secret that college students who become involved in student organizations tend to increase their success rates both in and out of the classroom. Students of economics at UW-Eau Claire have two student organizations to look into, and potentially make personal and professional connections that can last a lifetime.
Student Economics Association (SEA)
The Student Economics Association is a student organization facilitating a greater awareness of economics outside of the classroom. By joining the SEA you have an opportunity to interact with other students, professors, and professionals within the field. In addition, members become actively involved on campus and gain insight about internship and career opportunities.
