Often, marks are left behind for distinction, recognition and recollection. We leave remnants of our past to write our own history, to continue on our story that we want others to hear, be touched, marked and live by. Other marks may fade and disappear yet there are those that remain through the years, even with any havoc time may inflict. The mark of UP Economics Society is timeless, ceaseless, and endless. Numerous semesters passed by asserting the aspirations that the UP Economics Society lives up to. But on our Golden Anniversary, we witness the true affirmation and testament of the passion, commitment, and most of all, faith of the UP Economics Society to Service, Excellence and Tradition. This is what makes us deserve the golden mark. On this prestigious milestone, we continuously make known to the whole UP community and outside the borders of our university, the mark of who and what we are â€“ the ECOSOC way. Our unfaltering dedication for genuine community development of grade 3 tutorials for Balara Elementary School students, Saturday day care sessions for Pook Ricarte kids and most especially the full scholarship we provide for five deserving high school students shows our noble desire for service. Our members and alumni alike take pride in the notable achievements, pioneering events and prominent fundraisers that truly display the mark of excellence. And now, we commit ourselves to uphold the same tradition that our founders have started; to continue the legacy that ECOSOC has marked on peopleâ€™s lives. WE ARE THE UP ECONOMICS SOCIETY: THE GOLD MARK OF SERVICE, EXCELLENCE, AND TRADITION. Since 1958.

Dear Apps, Since I already have a reputation of using big words as I welcome applicants into this big organization, I’ll try to keep things simple this time. After all, the explanation of how it really feels like to be an Ecosocer is simple. But the impact on the lives of those Ecosoc touches remains BIG. Everyone knows how Ecosoc has changed my life. Palagi ko nga sinasabi na ECOSOC is the best thing that ever happened to me. Marami pa ata akong natutunan dito kaysa sa buong stay ko sa college so far. Or to qualify, mas marami a kong valuable na natutunan sa Ecosoc kumpara sa kahit anong classroom na napasukan ko. Hindi ko pa nababanggit yung mga relationships na nabuo ko dito. Just to cite some, dito sa ECOSOC ko nakilala ang longlost brother/magiging best man sa kasal ko, magiging wedding planner ko, at mga magiging ninong at ninang ng mga magiging anak ko! Oha. Kulang na lang yung mapapangasawa ko. Di ko lang sure kung nameet ko na nga sya dito sa Ecosoc. Hmm kung babae ka, malay mo ikaw pala yun! WAHAHA oy pero di talaga ako flirt ah baka naman natatakot ka na sakin. ;) Pero syempre wala namang binatbat ang experiences ko kumpara sa experiences ng daan-daan pang iba na naging bahagi ni Ecosoc sa loob ng 50 years. Kumpara sa experiences ng mga kids ng Balara Elementary School, ng mga kids ng Pook Ricarte, ni Nanay Maring na nagaalaga ng mga street children sa Pandacan, mababaw pa ang mga naging experiences ko sa ECOSOC.
50 years na ang ECOSOC, so malamang, marami na rin kaming naging part na ng mahabang history ng Service, Excellence at Tradition. Totoo, lahat kami natouch ng ECOSOC sa iba’t-ibang paraan at iba’t-ibang degrees. Kung may isang bagay man na common sa amin ni Godofredo Bamba (ang unang president ng ECOSOC) kasama na lahat ng mga taong naadik sa sa ECOSOC in between, yun ay lahat kami, hinayaan namin at pinili naming maexperience ang kung ano man ang naexperience namin sa ECOSOC. Gets? HAHA. Gets mo yan, taga-Econ ka eh. :) Ang application process ng ECOSOC, simple lang naman ang gustong itest—kung sa loob ng isang sem ay patuloy mong pinipili na maexperience ang ECOSOC experience sa kabila ng hirap, pagod, stress, hassle na kasama sa package deal. At the end of it all, masisiguro ko naman sayo na worth it lahat. LAHAT. So sayo, mahal na applicant, WELCOME! Full blast kami ngayong sem hahaha siguradong masarap na experience yun. Promise. Kung pipiliin mong tumuloy hanggang mafeel mo na kung anong ECOSOC experience ang pinagsasasabi ko, then see you sa 50th year! It is our choices, far more than our abilities that define who we are sabi nga ni Albus Dumbledore. Bading sya, oo pero tama yun. Kaya ikaw, choose to experience the ECOSOC experience.
Dear Applicants, Hello and a very sincere WELCOME TO ECOSOC! :) Before everything else, uunahan ko na kayo. :) Siguro ang una niyong tiningnan ay ang “Application Requirements” na nakalagay sa likod ng primer na ito. At kung hindi, siguro ngayon ay kakatingin niyo lang. Hehe. It may seem like a lot initially, but don’t be daunted! Those specific events and requirements were especially chosen because they are able to expose you to all the different facets of Ecosoc. They are supposed to be opportunities for you to have fun while being able to get to know the Society. :) If Ecosoc is definitely something, it is that we are definitely diverse. Ecosoc has 12 Committees. As applicants you are given the chance to become part of one of the 9 Committees. The Adhoc and Taskforce Committees (lead by the President and Vice President respectively) are extra special committees whose members are specially chosen. For now, hindi pa kayo pwede dun. Hohoho. The other committee is the Membership Committee. We are in charge of guiding and screening you during your application process. Masusungit kaming lahat at kinakain namin ang mga apps na nagde-defer. Hahaha! Joke lang. :D Alam niyo siguro na this is the semester before our beloved 50th year. :) That is why this semester, we will be strict in implementing the application process. Pero kung strict kami sa guidelines, siguradong strict din kami sa
paninigurado na masaya ang application process ninyo! “Nothing worth it is every easy.” But remember, even if you may think that the process is hard, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun. The Membership Committee will always be available for you. :) Lastly, I’m sure you all have preconceived notions of what Ecosoc is, what being an Ecosocer is like. One thing is sure though: Ecosoc is not just an organization. What is Ecosoc to its members? Ecosoc is different for everybody. At the heart of course is CDC, yun ang lagi nating alalahanin. We are here because of the kids and the scholars. Pero ang pagiging isang Ecosocer, that is up to you. Maaring ma-enjoy mo ang marketing, o kaya’y ang pag-attend ng JPES events. Maraming paraan para maging isang Ecosocer, at para mahalin ang Ecosoc. Try things out, give them a shot. :) Honestly, hindi talaga mahirap ang pagdadaanan niyo, In time you will find yourself going to the tambayan automatically, not because you’re required but because you enjoy spending time with the people. Give yourself a chance to enjoy the events and to get to know the members. Excited na ako na mangyari yan sa inyo. :) Thank you for applying, and we hope you spend more time with us. :) Tuloy-tuloy na to! We’re happy to have you with us as we prepare for our grand celebration next semester. Good luck, apps! :) And again, WELCOME! :)
The University of the Philippines Economics Society s a socio-civic organization composed of almost two hundred Economics majors in the University of the Philippines. For 50 years now, it has flourished in the School of Economics, keeping the flame of the Grand tradition alive. The UP Economics Society was born in 1958 when a group of students from the College of Business Administration decided to create a means of serving their fellow students, as well as their community. The society is known for its various activities, all of which aim for the well being of its members and the achievement of its goal of SERVICE, EXCELLENCE and TRADITION. These include company tours, symposia, workshops, various sports events, variety shows, etc. The society also sponsors weekly tutorials for the Grade 6 students of San Vicente Elementary School, weekly day care sessions for younger children from Pook Ricarte, and semestral Free Clinics for various communities. But what distinguishes the Society from other organizations is the scholarship program. By means of the UP Economics Society Scholarship Fund (ESSF), six deserving students are currently able to go to school with full scholarships. We, in the society, maintain this scholarship fund through our semestral fundraisers. The many achievements of UP Ecosoc have not been ignored, as it has received the now defunct Wenceslao Vinzonâ€™s Award for Most Outstanding Organization, the most coveted award then in the entire UP system. Moreover, the organization received the Gawad Chancellor for Most Outstanding Organization and the Alpha Phi Omega Oblation for Best Organization.

We are an organization with a purpose. So try to befriend the scholars, know their guardians, and fill in the blanks:
The Constitution Committee is in charge of the constitutionâ€™s revisions and amendments.
The Commission on Elections is in charge of the election held towards the end of the first semester.

Ever wondered how it feels like to be part of another committee? You are required to undergo one “committee internship” during your application process. This is an opportunity for you to experience a different committee, to help out in a different kind of event. You may choose from those below. Guidelines: 1. The internship you choose must not be from your “home” committee. 2. When you have chosen, approach the respective Execom in charge of that internship. 3. Approach them as early as possible, as some internships have limited slots. 4. When your internship is over, don’t forget to give the Execom-in-charge of the internship your Internship Evaluation Form. 5. Ask the Memcom Chair for an Internship Evaluation Form. Liaison - Alumni Talk Membership - Grand Tradition SPEV - Tambay Week Event/ Vice Night Taskforce - Musikapella
Tambay Week (Sept 8-12) will be the most colorful week of the application process. Why? Well that is because there’s a “happening” each day. Also, __ tambay hours are expected from you. Hmm, sounds time-consuming? We think not because Aubrey Gloriani a.k.a. Tambay King had __ tambay hours in just one week. If he can, then why can’t you? So, come on, enjoy the company of the members and be the next Tambay King or Queen!
Besides the committee youâ€™ve been assigned to, it wouldnâ€™t hurt to extend an extra helping hand to the other committees. Do assist in little ways, and the head of the committee will reward you with bonus points.
