The Laurier Economics Club (LEC) is Wilfrid Laurier University’s only economics focused club on campus. Our mission is to provide resources to students with an interested in the field of economics. Through our speaker engagements, mock midterm sessions and our annual conference, we expose our members to a diverse range of economic knowledge and experience. We strive to enhance each member’s academic journey while providing them with tools to help them realize their full potential and value in a degree or minor in economics.

LEC helps students achieve their utmost ability through skill building activities and workshops. For everyone taking economic courses such as Introduction and Intermediate Microeconomics and Macronomics (EC120, EC140, EC270, and EC290), we offer mock midterms through the semester to help reinforce concepts and increase understanding.

Social

LEC enables strong unity between the club, students and faculty at Wilfrid Laurier University. We also like to have fun and take a break once in awhile. We hold contests for care baskets loaded with snacks and swag. Our larger fun event is the Wing King Challenge where contestants compete by eating chicken wings.
