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 19 CAEs in the United States.
|"Coming into my freshman year, I didn't know much about actuarial science aside from the fact that it requires a lot of math and has 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 Actuarial Science club is a great social platform for students. I met many excellent people who are willing to share their experience with me. Meeting other future actuaries and listen to their stories really motivate me to strive for my personal growth." "Joining the Actuarial Science Club is the best decision I have made 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."|
|"Coming in as a commonwealth campus student, I didn't know much about the Actuarial Science program and wasn't sure how to get involved. So, I reached out to the executive board, and they were a great inspiration, immediately putting me on the right track. The club from that point till now has served as an invaluable resource where I can develop both technically and professionally. During my freshman year, I got involved with the mentorship program, which allowed me to learn how to ace the career fair, study for exams, and inspire me to start the alumni mentorship program. I also got involved with the executive board, which has been one of my most rewarding experiences in college, allowing me to grow, transform the club, and develop friendships with others who have similar interests. I continue to be involved with the executive board and it has been pivotal to me landing a job in consulting."|
