What They’re Saying

No words can express how meaningful this past week was to my future.”

An accurate and fun glimpse into the life of an actuary with a good balance between math instruction and access to real-life actuaries and applications.”

“Actuarial Boot Camp made me absolutely sure I wanted to become an actuary. The professional speakers were invaluable in helping me to understand the various roles actuaries assume within a company. The camp is a wonderful networking opportunity for those looking for future summer internships.”

It was the one time during the summer when being a nerd was the coolest thing in the world! I learned so much about the profession, but also about being a professional and left the week mentally exhausted but emotionally thrilled about the opportunities I’d been introduced to.”

“My experience at Actuarial Boot Camp definitely reinforced my desire to want to be an actuary and got me excited about my future.”

Companies like MassMutual, The Hartford, Nassau Re, Prudential, Travelers and XL Catlin!

“It was a great opportunity to educate the next generation of actuaries.”

“Thank you for the invitation to participate and promote the actuarial profession to some of CT’s best and brightest students.”

“It was a real pleasure to come out and speak to the students...I was truly impressed with the engagement and knowledge of the students. They are off to a great start to becoming successful actuaries.”

“If I had attended an Actuarial Boot Camp before college, I would have definitely been light years beyond where I actually was. The program prepares students to be proactive about honing their actuarial competencies and grooms them for future internship opportunities.”

“Thank you for allowing my son to participate...  He learned a great deal from the experience, and it seems to solidify his interest in being an actuary. I hope you continue...to run this terrific program in the years ahead.”
