Abby Truhler

Syngenta - Minneapolis MN
Actuarial Class of 2014

In the Actuarial Science program, I get to learn about things that I love to do. The curriculum challenges me and allows me to learn about things that I will actually use in my lifetime. The Actuarial Science program builds relationships that are stronger than just college peers. We have a hands-on understanding of what each other are going through and career wise what we are all working for. The MCFAM team is extremely supportive of the Actuarial program, I cannot thank them enough.
