Checking in with our May 2011 Graduates

Each year, University Career Services releases a First Destination Survey, which checks in with the previous year's graduates to find out what they're doing six months after graduation. The results for our May 2011 class have recently been released, and we've posted some highlights of the survey on our website. Check it out.

Despite a tough job market, about 65% of the May 2011 class reported working either full-time or part-time six months after graduation, while about 28% were pursuing further education. Among the jobs reported, we have a zookeeper (bio major), a legislative correspondent for U.S. Congress (business), a Peace Corps member (global studies), and more. Many of our students are now serving through Teach for America. In fact, we're 4th among schools our size in the number of students joining Teach for America, with 80 of our graduates joining the program in 2011.
