No Such Thing as a Free Lunch:
An Economics Luncheon Seminar Series

Each semester, the Economics Department hosts a series of luncheons for our undergraduate students. The luncheon series, called  “No Such Thing as a Free Lunch: An Economic Luncheon Speaker Series,” serves as an opportunity for the faculty to visit with our majors, for the majors to visit with one another, and for the majors to hear a talk on an issue of interest from an expert in the field. The luncheon series has been very well attended and is quite popular with our students.

The luncheon schedule for Fall 2013 follows.
