 Future Plans of Bachelor's Degree Recipients 

Bachelor degree recipients who attended commencement on December 15, 2012 were asked to complete a brief graduation exit survey about their future plans.   These students were asked “What is MOST LIKELY to be your PRINCIPAL activity upon graduation?” Of the 224 undergraduate students graduating in the fall 2012 semester, 147 students completed the survey, which is about a 66% response rate.  An analysis of the survey responses is shown below:
