The Phi Chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society in economics, was established in the spring of 1998. Omicron Delta Epsilon has among its objectives the recognition of scholastic attainment, the honoring of outstanding achievements in economics, and the establishment of closer ties between students and faculty in economics. Membership is awarded to undergraduates who have a genuine interest in economics and who have attained an outstanding performance level, not only in their economics courses, but also cumulatively in all courses.

The ceremony took place as part of Randolph College’s Honor Society Joint Induction, a celebration of student academic achievement across a variety of disciplines. Honor societies in chemistry, classics, communication studies, economics, English, physics, political science, psychology and sociology, as well as Phi Beta Kappa, all inducted their new honorees at the event.
