Exit Survey for Graduates

All graduates, regardless of attending the commencement ceremony, should complete the Exiting Graduate Survey in December. It will be administered via laptops setup directly outside the Maverick Store at the same time as cap and gown pickup. The survey, which inquires about plans after graduation, should take approximately 5 minutes to complete. The results will help academic departments and the institution better prepare students for life after college.
