FAQs

What is PSUEA?

The Penn State University Economics Association (PSUEA) is an organization of students with a passion for economics, who wish to grow both academically and personally outside of the classroom. Overall, we provide our members with an environment where they can meet people who share their interests, make new friends, and succeed at Penn State and beyond.

When and where are meetings held?

Our weekly meetings are held every Tuesday at 8pm in 160 Willard Building on campus.  

What can I expect at meetings?

Every meeting is a little different, but we regularly have academic presentations, current event discussions, economic simulations, and guest speakers including alumni, recruiters, and professors.

Do I have to be an Economics major to join?

Not at all. While many of our members are students in the Economics Department, we have a diverse range of students with different backgrounds and interests. As long as you have an interest in Economics, we hope you’ll find a home with us!

Can I become a member in the middle of the semester?

Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend a meeting at any time.  

Are there networking opportunities?

Yes! Each semester the Association holds a Business Mixer where we invite recruiters from a variety of industries to campus to network with our members. Additionally, we hold Information Sessions with recruiters, have an alumni mentoring program, and plan company networking trips to both New York City and Washington, D.C.

Are there leadership position opportunities?

The Executive Board (President, VP of Communications, VP of Education, VP of Finance, VP of Outreach, and VP of Research) is  elected at the end of each Spring semester. Each of the Vice Presidents have Committee Coordinators (year long positions) that are hired shortly after the Executive Board is elected in the Spring. Those Coordinators then hire Associates (semester long positions) during the Fall and Spring semesters. To learn more about these Committees and view open positions, please visit the Apply section of our website.

Does the Association offer tutoring?

While we do not have a formal tutoring program, the Association hosts regular study sessions and can help match you with a student that would be interested in tutoring you. For more information, please contact Nicole at communications@psuea.org.
