What excites me about being an Actuarial Science Major at the U of M is the opportunity to apply mathematics to my interest in business and finance. I have always enjoyed math, but I wanted a practical way to apply my analytical skills. The field itself is constantly evolving and every day brings something different. The advising along with the Actuary Club has been the most helpful aspect of the program. MCFAM is working to get everyone involved in what it is doing.
