[00:00:12.710]to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus
[00:00:15.590]for the Actuarial Research Conference in August 2020.
[00:00:20.120]The University of Nebraska-Lincoln
[00:00:22.170]boasts a strong history in actuarial science.
[00:00:25.310]In the 1920s, math professor Floyd Harper
[00:00:29.370]taught actuarial mathematics.
[00:00:32.400]Our program formalized in 1957 when industry leaders
[00:00:37.220]in the Nebraska Actuaries Club hired a director
[00:00:40.790]and provided external funding and oversight.
[00:00:45.510]As our program grew to 400 students
[00:00:48.720]and eight full-time faculty,
[00:00:51.250]our strong connection with industry continued.
[00:00:56.470]Today, the faculty, students, and industry
[00:01:00.330]in Nebraska invite you to the
[00:01:02.460]Actuarial Research Conference next August.

[00:01:10.930]located in Howard L. Hawks Hall, opened in 2017.
[00:01:16.280]Named in honor of Omaha businessman,
[00:01:18.890]philanthropist, and university regent,
[00:01:21.570]the building inspires, enables you
[00:01:23.660]to collaborate, innovate, and congregate.
[00:01:27.290]The $84 million privately funded building
[00:01:30.900]fosters interactions among students,
[00:01:33.960]faculty, alumni, and visitors
[00:01:36.730]who impact the future of business.
[00:01:39.530]You can choose to stay on campus in suite-style housing
[00:01:43.610]or at one of three reserved hotels
[00:01:45.880]in the historic Haymarket district within walking distance.
[00:01:50.290]You can also spend an afternoon
[00:01:52.830]at the world famous Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha.
[00:01:56.030]Explore the 160 acre zoo by foot or by train.
[00:02:00.357]Walk through the famous Lied Jungle
[00:02:02.780]and under manta rays in the Scott Aquarium.
[00:02:06.540]The trip concludes with an onsite banquet.
