Student Groups

The Economics and Finance Society (EFS) at West Chester University is a student organization whose members consist of students interested in economics and finance matters. In addition to providing campus networking opportunities for students with similar interests in the economics and finance fields, EFS has also engendered closer relationships between students and faculty. The organization also serves as a forum for discussing the role of economics in public policy.

It is not mandatory that EFS members be Economics or Finance majors, however, it would be useful if interested students have an interest in either economics or finance. Interested students are advised to contact Dr. Tom Andrews via email at or by calling 610-436-1082.

Each year, the EFS members plan one field trip, usually either to the financial district in New York City or to a site in Washington, D. C. Students interested in making a career on Wall Street may find such trips helpful in developing useful networking contacts early in their academic careers. The Society participates in WCU's Adopt-A-Block Program, spending two mornings each year cleaning one square city block close to campus. The organization typically hosts an annual career night and invites recruiters from regional businesses to visit with students. picture of students working at computer
