St. Lawrence University’s supportive alumni network combined with transformative academics and a strong job market led to more than 95 percent of recent graduates being employed or attending graduate school less than one year after graduation, an outcome rate that has remained steady for the last several years.
The Career Services Follow-Up Survey asked St. Lawrence University’s Class of 2018 what they were doing seven to 10 months after graduation. The survey is an important component of Career Services’ efforts to understand the kinds of work and graduate programs new graduates are interested in pursuing.
The Class of 2018 reported that 80 percent of graduates were employed less than one year after graduation, an increase of 3 percent over last year. Of those, 92 percent of respondents reported being satisfied or very satisfied with their work, and 82 percent reported that their work was related to their desired career path. Overall, mean salaries for 2018 graduates increased to nearly $45,000 per year, an 8 percent increase over the Class of 2017.
