All students are strongly encouraged to join the Insurance Society as soon as they become departmental majors. Membership in the society not only makes the student eligible for scholarship awards, but also entitles the student to free attendance at the Careers Day program and the Spring Awards Banquet. In addition, only members of the Insurance Society are entitled to submit résumés for inclusion in the departmental résumé book.

To join the Insurance Society, complete an application available in 206 Brooks and give the departmental secretary (who is also in 206 Brooks) a check for dues (currently $35), payable to the Insurance Society. Because the dues payment is a one-time only fee, it is advantageous to join the society as early in a student’s college career as possible. Questions about the Insurance Society should be directed to the organization’s faculty advisor, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) (265C Brooks Hall).
