Each year Loyola asks our graduating class about their post-college status within 6 months of graduation. For more than a decade, around 95 percent of our graduates have reported that they are working, attending graduate school, serving our country in the military or engaged in a post-college service program like the Jesuit Volunteer Corps or Teach for America.
In other words, nearly all of our graduates have landed in their "first destination" within six months of walking across the stage at Commencement.
The impressive results don't stop there, but don't take our word for it. According to the Brookings Institution's 2015 Value-Added Report, Loyola is in the top 2 percent of universities nationwide for the value Loyola's name adds to our graduates' mid-career salaries. For the past few years, Payscale.com has calculated that Loyola alumni are in the top 6 percent nationwide for mid-career salaries.
There's much more to be excited about. Learn more on the value of a Loyola degree and explore stories of how our alumni are leading and serving across the globe today.
