First Destinations

This was a survey of all fourth year undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students were asked to participate in the survey in the early spring just prior to graduation. The survey ask students what they anticipated their `first destination` to be upon graduation. Students were then surveyed in the fall immediately following graduation to see how closely their information matched what they actually did after graduation.

First Destinations 2011-12

This is a survey of fourth year students in the College of Arts and Sciences who plan to graduate in May. These students are asked to share their `first destination` after college. The data that is collected gives University Career Services information about the number of students who have full-time employment when they graduate, the number who have been accepted into graduate school, and those whose plans are still in the planning phase. This information is then available to employers, future students, and departments who are preparing students for life after college graduation.
