Our club helps actuarial students pass actuarial exams and land their dream jobs. We run events to strengthen our students' leadership, networking, professional, and actuarial skills. We aim to continue Penn State's legacy as one of the world's 33 CAEs (Center of Actuarial Excellence) and one of only 17 CAEs in the United States.
|"Coming into my freshman year, I didn't know much about actuarial science besides that it requires a lot of math and many tests. From the start, the Actuarial Science Club has served as an amazing resource where I can learn more about my future profession and meet people going through the same things as I am. My favorite part of the club is the mentor program because it has made starting my actuarial journey less intimidating. From scheduling advice to mock interviews, my mentor is continually helping me grow and preparing me for the future." "The Actuarial Science club does an excellent job of providing resources to undergraduate students pursuing Actuarial Science. The specific resources that I found to be the most helpful are the resume books and the career fair which were essential in me securing an internship with Highmark Health this summer. The club is also a great way to get to know other students in the program, many of whom are now good friends!" "The Actuarial Science Club removes all obstacles to make finding a job as straight forward as possible. From the resume book to the vast number of company info sessions to the career fair itself, the club provides services that make the whole process practically stress free."|
|"Beginning the first week of my freshman year, the Actuarial Science Club gave me all the necessary knowledge and resources to succeed in the Career Fair and in classes. I had very little idea of what classes to take, how to prepare for an actuarial exam, how to interview for job positions... the Club's many events and board members were indispensable to the start of my college career. My mentor, who I met through the Club, taught me a lot about the actuarial profession and gave me great advice to land my first internship." "The club helped me a lot in my college career. Meeting other actuaries allowed me to have friends in my classes to study and go through the SOA exam process with. I also got to be on the executive board of the club which help me meet other students not in my classes and help them succeed. The career fair helped me find my internship after my junior year, as well as many other interviews which helped me practice and feel more prepared when interviewing for full-time positions. Without the club I definitely would have felt lost on which classes to take, when to take exams, and how to get a job." "Joining the Act Sci club is my best decision thus far. I’ve learned to communicate effectively, with rigor and precision. And best of all, I’m part of a community of insightful and interesting people."|
