Farewell ESSA

Dear ESSA members,

It has been an absolute privilege to have been your President over the past year. I am humbled by all your kind words at ESSA events, in the corridors of the Spot building, tutorials and lectures! I could not have hoped for a warmer welcome on campus for the Economics Student Society of Australia: thank you. It puts the biggest smile on my face to hear someone discuss how awesome an ESSA event was, or hearing from alumni that they wish ESSA was around when they were still studying.

Economics Student Society of Australia (ESSA) – Welcome!

ESSA logo

Welcome to the Economics Student Society of Australia, more fondly known as ESSA!

So exactly who is ESSA? ESSA was founded in 2012 by a group of friends at the University of Melbourne who love Economics! During our first years of University we knew we loved economics, but had no idea where a major in Economics could take us. And VOILA, ESSA was born.

We are here to help you figure out how Economics can help you. We’re here to provide you with a support network, filled with both students and industry contacts. We’re here to provide you with a contact point to learn more about how Economics impacts you. We’re here to provide you with a forum of discussion.

We hope to provide you with that extra support we craved for when finding our feet at University.

Whether you’re in your first year or your last year, we hope to be a friend to you.

Now, enough about us… what about you? Click on more, go on, you know you want to.
