Departmental Honors

The writing of Honors papers allows students to gain real academic experience by researching, producing and then presenting professional, scholarly written work to a faculty and student audience. The paper is written on a topic of shared interest between the student and faculty supervisor, and is a collaborative experience. In the past, several of these papers have eventually been published in scholarly journals.

College Fed Challenge

The College Fed Challenge is an annual competition hosted by the Federal Reserve Board and co-sponsored by several Federal Reserve regional banks. The competition charges teams to assess the current health – and risks – of the U.S. economy and to then advise the Federal Open Market Committee concerning the policy tools that should be deployed to support healthy growth. The competition has two rounds. In the first round, all participating teams construct a video presentation detailing their findings and recommendations. In the later rounds, advancing teams engage in a 15-minute live Q&A with economists from the Federal Reserve System.
