Terran Hill (BS 2020)
In his first semester at UMSL, Hill took Principles of Microeconomics with Professor David Rose and immediately liked the subject matter.
“It combined literally everything I like into one major,” Hill said. “You get some math, a little bit of philosophy, a bit of history, a little bit of everything.”
Hill found a camaraderie among economics students, who often hung out and worked through problems together in the Sharon G. Levin Economics Resource Center on the fourth floor of the Social Sciences and Business Building.
“One of the things they emphasize is collaborative learning, learning with your peers,” Hill said. “They always write on the board that it is not a quiet lab, so people coming in won’t get upset because you come into a computer lab and there’s people talking. They host events there. They host speakers. I met a lot of people there.”
Hill was just as grateful for the faculty members he learned from and got to know over the past two years, from Rose and Professor and Chair Anne Winkler to Professor Lea-Rachel Kosnik and Assistant Teaching Professor Brian Speicher. Hill currently is weighing acceptances to law schools. (UMSL Daily)

“ Without the Economics Resource Center, I wouldn't be an economics major. It is a tightly knit community of students who strive for excellence and help you succeed no matter where you are in your academic journey. Every single day I see my professors whether I have a class with them that day or not, and I have the opportunity to ask any questions I have, and they are always happy to stay and help becuse they truly care about my success. I have never seen such dedication towards student success before in my life, and I am so proud to be part of UMSL Economics."

“ I think every econ professor should make their students aware of the econ lab from day 1, and many days after. It was an invaluable resource for learning difficult material, making friends and generally keeping eachother sane. I think anyone who doesn't use it regularly is putting themselves at a huge disadvantage, and missing out on a lot of fun. Can't reccomend it highly enough. Will always remember staying long after close to study for finals and wrap up papers with some great people I wouldn't have gotten any real chance to show otherwise."
