Since 2006, Fisher's Economics Club has brought together students from a multitude of majors to discuss and study relevant economic issues. The club fosters the advancement of the social sciences and serves the community by informing them of economic issues.
Throughout the year, the club also hosts guest lecturers, arranges trips, and screens economics-related films. In addition, the group sponsors a reading and discussion group that meets twice monthly.
