The first event of the Society of Actuaries in Ireland's new Student Society Committee for students and recent qualifiers was held on 20 November - a night at the dogs at Shelbourne Park.
Up to 65 students arrived to enjoy the blur of the dogs as they disappeared around the first bend, the jostling for position, and to cheer on their choice as it surged across the line. With a flutter riding on each dog, pulse rates were raised high and there were some big wins among the attendees. Where else would 30 seconds bring such excitement and fun?
Shelbourne Park provided a fantastic range of finger food on the night, washed down with a few complementary drinks. Thanks to them for running the event and to all those who attended. Pictures of the evening can be found on our Student Society of Actuaries in Ireland Facebook page.
We're going to organise more events soon this year and will be in contact about these closer to the time.
Lastly, from all the student committee, we'd like to congratulate those who were successful in the September exams and wish good luck to all those sitting exams in April.
