The faculty of the Department of Economics awards a medal at Commencement to the student who has achieved the highest index in the major (in some circumstances, two students have received the award). In May, 1999 this award was retitled the Brother Anthony John Glennon Medal in Economics, in memory of the first chair of the Department.
The Department of Economics is also proud to be the home of the Nu Chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the national honor society in Economics. Students are generally elected to the chapter in Spring of the Senior year. The requirements are a 3.8 index in the major and a 3.5 index overall.
The top students in the major are also nominated for membership in Delta Epsilon Sigma, a national scholastic honor society founded in 1939 for students, faculty, and alumni of colleges and universities with a Catholic tradition. To be eligible for membership, students must rank within the top 10% of their degree-granting categories, and they must maintain a cumulative index of 3.5. They must also be willing to assist in the work of their departments in a manner chosen by the department Chair or Coordinator: For example, some students might tutor while others may assist faculty with research, and other service projects can be developed with the approval of the Chair or Coordinator. Students should have completed 90 credits of coursework before being inducted into Delta Epsilon Sigma.
