Ethan Tremblay, a double major in economics and journalism, graduated with highest honors on Saturday. His honors thesis measured the influence of organizational context on experimental measures of cooperation in the food sector. Tremblay compared a food coop with a traditional grocery. Tremblay is now preparing his thesis for publication, and will begin a Masters of Economics with Tim Waring in the fall of 2015.
