“It was immensely rewarding sharing something that I have been working so hard on over the course of my senior year with a community who shares a deep appreciation for economics and economic research. I was particularly grateful for the opportunity to engage with other students from different schools at the conference’s reception, where I was able to form new connections and friendships that I plan to maintain over the course of my professional journey in economics.”

-Alexa Rasmussen, 2021 IPE conference presenter
