New First Destination data collected by the Office of Personal and Career Development show that 98 percent of the Wake Forest undergraduate class of 2016 are either employed or in graduate school (based on a 91 percent knowledge rate).
First Destination data, information collected on students up to six months after graduation, show that while more than a third of Wake Forest graduates remain in North Carolina to contribute their talents to our state, graduates also land jobs nationwide and worldwide.
“Wake Forest is committed to the long-term success of our alumni, and we proactively stay connected.” Mercy Eyadiel, associate vice pres. career development & corporate engagement
“The strong relationships between Wake Forest alumni, parents, employers and the University build networks of support for each new class of Wake Forest grads seeking to gain a foothold or advance in various industries,” Eyadiel said.
Earlier this year, Wake Forest University was named one of 200 outstanding colleges in Princeton’s 2016 publication, “Colleges That Pay You Back: The 200 Schools That Give You the Best Bang for your Tuition Buck.”
As a national leader in building a college-to-career community, Wake Forest continues to innovate and improve the programming and resources available to students and alumni.
