Blue Hen Economics Club

Students at the University of Delaware’s Alfred Lerner College of Business and Economics have a diverse range of nearly 30 student-led groups on campus, offering students opportunities to connect, engage and grow in their personal and professional interests.

Louis Fevrin, Class of 2025 finance and business analytics double major, is the president of the Blue Hen Economics Club. Fevrin shared why he joined the club, what makes the group stand out and how to get involved.

Lerner: When and why did you choose to join this student group?

Fevrin: I joined the economics club during my freshman year due to the potential leadership opportunities and wanting to grow in my knowledge of economics. Through the years this club has exceeded my expectations and I have grown in all areas both as a student and as a person.

Lerner: When and where does your student group meet and approximately how many members do you have?

Fevrin: We meet multiple times a semester, usually in Gore, Kirkbride, or Lerner Hall. The number of members we have fluctuates per semester, but right now we have about 50 active members.

Lerner: What is the mission/goal of your student group?

Fevrin: The Blue Hen Economics club’s mission is to build a sense of community among undergraduate economics students at the University of Delaware, while providing opportunities for growth through academic and social events.

Lerner: What is your best memory or proudest moment from this student group?

Fevrin: My best memory was when members of the Philadelphia Federal Reserve came to campus for the day. I was able to go to lunch with them and ask them both economic and life questions. That evening they gave a very interesting presentation on the state of the economy.

Lerner: What is unique about your student group?

Fevrin: What is unique about our club is our emphasis on everything economics. As a club created for economics majors and students with an interest in economics, we try to let our members experience economics from all angles whether that’s professional development events, research panels from professors, current event discussions, or networking opportunities.

Lerner: What are your goals for the future of your student group?

Fevrin: My goal for the future of the club is to continue to provide unique opportunities that allow for members to grow. In the past year we have introduced new events such as working with technology such as Stata and discussions about current events. In the future I hope that we are able to expand on this and create more opportunities for members to gain and use the practical skills that they gain in class.

Lerner: How has your student group helped you grow, personally or professionally?

Fevrin: The Blue Hen Economics Club has helped me grow by providing me with the opportunity to learn from others. Due to the events that we provide I have been able to network with economic professors, the Delaware State Treasurer, and Federal Reserve employees, as well as other members. I believe that by being a part of this club I have been able to grow in my economic skills and gain a better understanding of my skills and strengths.
