Actuarial Club

I get the weekly activity update from a local university, mostly so that I am aware of the different speakers who will be on campus.

This week, I saw a notice to inform me that on Thursday evening the university is organizing an Actuarial Club. Pizza will be served at the first meeting.

Is this what college has come to? Actuarial club meetings on Thursday night? Back when I was in college, Thursday was the party night. But now it's an evening reserved for calculating your risk of heart disease. Can you hook up at an actuarial meeting? What are the odds on that? I figure these folks will know.

To quote one of my favorite women "The odds are good, but the goods are odd."

I took a statistics class (panel data) in the business school from an actuarian. Delightfully (or not, for those of us in the class), he lived up to every stereotype you have of actuarians.
