Don't forget Indiana State University. The Missouri Valley Conferences gets interesting when ISU plays ISU. ISU is way better than ISU in football and usually basketball, but it just gives a head ache when you see that ISU is playing ISU. At least Indiana University was smart and is the only IU while Iowa and Illinois are UI.

There isn't, unless they added one this year.

There are many of us that did not get an actuarial degree. I don't know of too many actuaries from Iowa State though.

Oh, I see. I guess I misinterpreted the title "Actuarial Science Universities Forum" then.

I am an actuary from Iowa State University. ISU doesn't have a specific degree program for actuarial science, but we are one of the best universities for statistics.

I do know several actuaries from ISU though. I think it's mostly because ISU is a very good engineering school, and a lot of us switched from engineering to actuarial science....
