This approach gets results. A full 97 percent of graduates from the Class of 2013 (the most recent data available) are either employed or in graduate school one year after graduation. But what does that mean for you?
Dig into the data
Each year, we survey alumni one year after they've graduated — and scour LinkedIn and other sources — to find out what our most recent graduates are up to. We’ve uploaded the results from the past three years and organized the information in some ways that we find interesting, but that’s only the beginning. Every chart on this page is interactive, so go ahead: click, filter, sort and drill down into the data. Find out what graduates who pursued an area of study that you are considering were doing just one year after graduation. Explore differences by class year, location and more.
Connecticut College prepares students to be citizens in a global society through academics, hands-on international study, and internships and research opportunities. This preparation paid off for internationally-minded alumni in 2013, with graduates studying and working in 19 countries and on five continents. Those who have remained in the U.S. are living in 31 different states. Where would you like to live and work after graduation?
