Graduate Breakfast Seminar

A student only seminar, held on a Friday morning each month. Four to five students will present for 10 to 15 minutes about the general progress of their research and receive feedback from fellow students. We’re working to be able to provide breakfast to all participants. More Information can be found HERE.

Annual Economic Graduate Student Conference
Each Fall the GSA hosts the Economic Graduate Student Conference (EGSC). Every year we invite a noteworthy speaker for the Douglas North Honorary Lecture.

Monthly Department Socials
On the last Thursday of every month, second-year students reserve space at a local restaurant for department socials. Note, biannual picnics take precedence over monthly department socials.

Biannual Picnics
Each Fall and Spring, second-year students lead a cookout at beautiful Shaw Park in Historic Clayton or Forest Park.

Annual Field Trip
A fun activity each Spring just to get you out of the office. Last year we played paintball!
