Spring 2019 Graduating Student Survey

University of Arkansas students graduating this spring are invited to complete the First Destination Survey to report their post-graduation pursuits and learn what other students are doing after graduation. The survey can be found by logging into Handshake or following instructions provided in an email they will receive this week. Students are permitted to log in to Handshake multiple times through mid-May 2019 to ensure they provide the most accurate, current data.

Faculty and staff are asked to encourage graduating students to complete this survey, which informs the U of A graduates' career paths and serves as a great resource for both prospective and current students' career planning. It also enables students to find out what their fellow Razorbacks are doing after graduation. As students complete the survey, they receive feedback comparing their plans to the rest of their class.

The University Career Development Center works collaboratively with all U of A colleges to collect graduates' post-graduation data and maintains a database of students who apply for graduation each term. The center then reports the data on behalf of the University of Arkansas to various agencies, including the U.S. News & World Report College Ranking Issue, U.S. News Top Online Education Graduate Programs Survey, National Association of Colleges and Employers First-Destination/Post-Graduate Survey, Princeton Review Survey, Peterson's Undergraduate Survey, College Board Survey, and Wintergreen Survey.
