Many opportunities exist on campus to join social student clubs that are administrated by the Alma Mater Society (AMS). Some of their clubs that offer activities related to economics include:
Vancouver School of Economics Undergraduate Society (VSEUS)
VSEUS represents all undergraduate students studying economics at UBCs Vancouver campus, including those who are enrolled in the Major, Combined Major, Minor, Honours and the Bachelor of International Economics programs of the Vancouver School of Economics. It prioritizes member care and development by assisting in the academic, extracurricular, and personal growth of each member. To achieve these goals the Society organizes many events each year, such as Dinner with Professors, Talkonomics, Bar Social, Grad School Information Session, Career Night, Year-end Dinner, and 101/102 review sessions.
