First Destination Survey

Overview of the Survey:

The First Destination Survey provides data concerning recent Salisbury University graduates. The data has been collected every spring since May 2003 (except for 2004). The data is collected by locating computer stations in the Bookstore while students pick up their caps and gowns for graduation.  By doing this, the return rate usually runs over 70%. The data is used to understand where our students are working, where they are going to graduate school, did they do an internship, etc.  The SU First Destination Survey is a wonderful snapshot of our students when they graduate.
