Today marks the first day of fall semester 2014 at Ball State University! We want to welcome back all the students and professors and wish everyone the best as we prepare for the challenges laid out before us. The economics club has a slew of speakers and events coming up. We will have a schedule of events posted here on the blog next week. For those student new to economics at Ball State, the department offers a peer tutoring service to help student through the beginning economics classes. We will have a schedule with all of the tutors’ hours posted next week as well. Look forward to some introduction articles for the two new economics professors, Dr. Nicholas Curott and Dr. Jean Paul Rabanal Sobrino. We will be sure to catch you up on Dr. Cecil Bohanon and his research on Jane Austen and Adam Smith. Also be sure to check out weekly articles from Ball State professor Dr. Michael Hicks. I hope everyone has a great start to the school year and/or great last bit of summer. More content on the way next week!
