“So many people are gifted in math, but aren’t sure how to use their skills in a vocation. This program will give them an avenue.

"As a practitioner of the actuarial profession, I can’t help but look back to my time at Dordt and think of the many benefits this program would have offered, not the least of which would be to answer the pesky but frequent question, ‘So what are you going to do with that fancy math degree?’ The actuarial science major will add to an already strong mathematics program at Dordt, giving existing students another focus for their talents and helping attract bright new students.”
