Spring semester means learning, community service and networking
This is the Phi Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma at Ball State University. We are a student-led chapter of an international fraternal organization founded in 1965 for students interested in Actuarial Science, Risk Management, and Insurance.
Gamma Iota Sigma strives to help actuarial and insurance candidates in our programs find employment, pass professional exams, and network with others in our majors.
For employers interested in Ball State, most of our actuarial and insurance recruiting takes place in the Fall semester. All of our interviews are conducted through the Ball State Career Center
Additionally, most companies choose to hold a presentation the evening before they come to campus for interviews. If you are interested in holding a campus presentation or learning more about our program, send us an email. We will put you in touch with one of our officers who can speak with you about club events.
