Mentorship Program

Every year, Bruin Actuarial Society officers and other qualified seniors serve as mentors for students interested in the actuarial career. Your mentor will serve as a resource for you to learn more about the steps you should be taking as a UCLA student to pursue an actuarial career, whether you have questions about studying for exams, recruiting for internships, or taking UCLA courses.

The mentorship program is open to students of all years and majors and is not restricted to paid members. Although our annual Mentorship Mixer on Friday, October 23rd has already passed, students are welcome to sign up for the mentorship program at any time throughout the year.

If you are interested in becoming a mentee, please look over this mentor info sheet and then fill out this Mentor Preferences Form.

Who We Are

Bruin Actuarial Society serves as the undergraduate student organization associated with the Actuarial Program at UCLA. Led by our board of officers, comprised of undergraduate students, we host events throughout the school year to develop our members academically, socially and professionally. We also maintain the Actuarial Program's connections with insurance and actuarial consulting firms and keep our members updated on internship and career opportunities.

BAS hosts the Actuarial Program's largest events of each year, including our Annual Career Fair in the fall, Actuarial Case Competition in the winter, and Spring Banquet. Our Career Fair is one of the largest in the nation, with over twenty firms attending annually. In addition, we host firm representatives for information sessions, resume workshops and mock interviews, professionalism workshops, and technical workshops to teach programming skills. 

Prospective students and firms interested in building connections with UCLA actuaries, always feel free to contact us at bruinactuaries@gmail.com.

Upcoming Events

We are pleased to announce that our 2021 Spring Banquet will be held over Zoom on Monday, May 3rd, 2021 at 5 PM PDT, and you're invited! The registration deadline is Friday, April 30th. Additionally, since our 2020 Spring Banquet was canceled, we would like to extend this invitation to those who were paid BAS members for the 2019-2020 school year. Please see below for more information.

What is Spring Banquet?

Spring Banquet is a grand dinner and networking event that BAS hosts every Spring Quarter. Each year, over 75 BAS members and 30 representatives of actuarial firms, many of them UCLA alumni, come together for this special event to celebrate the accomplishments of our members and the Bruin Actuarial Society as a whole.

Transitioning to a virtual format, we will not be able to serve our usual buffet-style dinner this year. Instead, we will be introducing a game with opportunities to win prizes, as well as recognizing graduating seniors and hosting general networking with firm representatives. We can safely say that this is one of the largest gatherings of actuarial talent and students in the region and so a great opportunity for you to meet new people in a more relaxed setting compared to the Career Fair. Based on feedback from the Case Competition networking, we will be creating smaller groups and providing more time for networking to ensure that everyone has a chance to engage in meaningful conversations.

Freshmen, even those who haven't been heavily involved in BAS events during their first year, are strongly encouraged to attend! This banquet will give you a feel of interacting with professionals before heavy recruitment in the fall.

Seniors (including Class of 2020), we strongly encourage you to attend this event, as it is our last big BAS event before graduation. We will be recognizing seniors with a farewell gift and hope to see you all in attendance one last time (before you come back as firm reps!).

The event will be free for paid members and $5 for unpaid members. Details about payment as well as the RSVP form can be found here.
