2020 Graduates Save The Date

FRIDAY, JUNE 19, 2020 | NOON-2:00PM

(Noon-1:00PM Lunch; 1:00-2:00PM Awards)



To graduating Economics majors: 

We hope that you will attend our annual lunch on Friday, June 19, 2020 to honor and celebrate your graduation from Northwestern and, specifically, from the best department in the University!  The lunch in your honor will start at Noon, and will follow the graduation ceremonies. Make your way back to campus on the shuttle buses and get off at the Garrett Place stop. Walking directions may be found here. We will be serving cool drinks, sandwiches and desserts (food will be available until 1:00 p.m.) Many of our faculty will be there and we would like to get the chance to congratulate you and also to say nice things about you to your family and friends.

About 1:00PM, we will be giving out the awards to the students who were awarded honors for their senior theses, those who have received Deibler or Eisner Awards for particularly outstanding senior theses or overall records in economics, and also the students who completed the BA/MA degree.

You are not required to attend the awards ceremony. So even if you are not an award recipient, we would love for you to show up to introduce your family to the professors, take some pictures, and grab some lunch between Noon and 1pm.

It's a very nice event and we hope you can make it.  Electronic invitations will be sent out to all Econ graduates and faculty in May 2020.
