Background: ODE is one of the largest academic honor societies in the world, dating back to 1915. The Theta chapter at Rutgers University in New Brunswick was chartered in 1969. In addition to fostering closer ties between students and faculty and enriching and expanding its members’ knowledge of economics, ODE also provides international recognition of outstanding academic achievement in economics, awards a number of prizes for outstanding contributions, and provides opportunities to present papers at annual meetings and publish in The American Economist, the Journal of Omicron Delta Epsilon.
