Economics students have many opportunities to become involved in students-run and/or faculty-sponsored organizations on campus. The range of organizations spans academic societies to cultural/national groups to special interests groups to community service groups and more. Most of the activities sponsored by the Undergraduate Economics Program are run by our five student organizations:
Carnegie Mellon Economics Society. The Carnegie Mellon Economics Society provides a forum for and fosters discussions and activities that focus on economic theory, economic research, current events, and inter-disciplinary topics.
Economics Student Advisory Committee (E-SAC). The Undergraduate Economics Program's Student Advisory Council (E-SAC) is a student advisory committee whose mission to provide feedback on undergraduate issues including curriculum, scheduling, events, and professional development. E-SAC also organizes social events for the UEP community.
Moneythink CMU.

Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE). ODE, the International Honor Society in Economics, is "dedicated to the encouragement of excellence in economics."
Students for Undergraduate Research in Economics (SURE). SURE is a student organization that cultivates undergraduate student-faculty and undergraduate student-graduate student relationships with the specific goal of exposing and fostering undergraduate student access to economic research on the CMU campus. SURE’s mission is to provide opportunities for undergraduates to be presented with faculty and graduate student research, match on campus research opportunities with undergraduate students, and provide a forum for undergraduates to discuss their own research. So that undergraduate students are better equipped to participate in research, SURE also offers meta-curricular workshops whose aim is develop undergraduate students’ knowledge of programming languages, database structures, and enhance students’ graphic, visual, and oral presentation skills.
