Northwest Nazarene University’s School of Business was accepted as a charter member in Omicron Delta Epsilon (ODE), the International Honor Society of Economics. NNU is the Delta Chapter of Idaho and recipient of the 672nd charter in the history of the organization, and joins Idaho State University (1968), Boise State (1976) and University of Idaho (1994) as the only colleges or universities in Idaho with an ODE Charter.
On September 20th, NNU President David Alexander presented the new charter to faculty advisor Dr. David Chaplin. “The Omicron Delta Epsilon Chapter at NNU provides our students the opportunity to distinguish themselves through high scholastic achievement in the field of economics. The addition of ODE to the other honor societies on campus improves the overall academic reputation of the university. Furthermore, it creates a ‘quadruple threat’ of honor societies in the School of Business, which are Delta Mu Delta (business administration), Alpha Mu Alpha (marketing) and the Financial Management Honor Society.”
Josh Siverson, a senior business administration and economics major from Nampa, was the first inductee in the honor society during the event.
