Want to learn how to predict the future? Like using math and statistics to solve problems?
Actuaries use mathematical skills to define, analyze and solve business problems involving the cost of possible future events.
An actuary is a business professional who analyzes the financial consequences of risk. Actuaries use mathematics, statistics, and financial theory to study uncertain future events, especially those of concern to insurance and pension programs.
A career as an Actuary is better described as a “business” career with a mathematical basis than as a “technical” mathematical career.

Being a math major at SHC is amazing because it's a small program and you become so close with your fellow classmates and professors. It's like a mini-family inside the SHC family.

Campus life is about as vibrant as I could have hoped for. The people are friendly, the activities are fun, the night life is fun, and the campus is beautiful. The feeling on campus is one where anyone can feel welcome and anyone can find their niche.
