SATSU (The Society of Actuaries at Truman State University) is an actuarial organization whose main aim is to supplement Trumanís Academic Program by helping produce some of the finest Mathematical/Business Professionals. Members are primarily actuarial students (anyone else is welcome!) who are working towards the following objectives:
  • Passing professional exams and hence improving their problem solving ability in math/statistics and finance/economics. Members learn to developing disciplined study habits by participating in organized study sessions
  • Expanding professional network, finding (actuarial) internships and getting involved in actuarial recruitment activities such as giving presentations
  • Acquiring keen project-management and analytical/computer skills coupled with sharpened communication and better business sense

Anyone interested in joining can email free to visit us at (still under construction). We meet every Tuesday at 6:00pm in VH1208

Wow, good to see. :tup: Alumni here, I graduated in December 2002. At the time I remember wishing Truman would get an interest theory class, although I think there were just a couple from my class that went on to become actuaries.

I'd offer to come speak and tell you of the fabulous life of the FSA, but I'm a good thousand miles away now.

yeah. as it stands, I think we have about three classes missing to attain what SOA considers a full "undergraduate program in Actuarial Science".

Steve smith teaches theory of interest. and Andrew Mun teahes Risk management and derivatives, which are both directly useful for the financial-type exams. Plus, as you might already have seen, we now have a minor in ActSci, that covers all the VEE's and prepare you for exam FM and P

Holy crap?! When did this start up? I graduated in 2000 and would have loved an Actuarial Science program at Truman. I ended up majoring in accounting and minoring in statistics. That's awesome that this is out there now. Good luck!

I graduated last summer and was among the first group of people who graduated with the Actuary Science minor. Looked really good on my resume and probably helped a bit to get the job I have now. Mun's Derivative class started the semester after I left - that's awesome that you guys are working towards getting the major. I think there were 3 or 4 of us from my class that went on to become actuarials, and there was a LOT of interest in the younger classes. Keep us updated on the progress.
