Wondering where the D18 class ended up after graduating?
Check out the D18 Career Outcomes Shared Document compiled by Marguerite Moore, Assistant Director of Student Affairs & Career Services to see stats and fun facts about where our D18’s ended up after graduation!
The information was gathered through The First Destination Survey. The Survey is a Career Services initiative to provide an in-depth understanding of the career paths that students take immediately after graduation. Students complete the survey as part of their administrative clearance process. The following data reflects a 95% knowledge rate. A 6-month follow-up will be conducted to include updated outcomes for students who had not yet cleared or who had not determined a career path upon clearing.
