What is the First Destination/Outcomes Survey?

The first destination survey is a brief online survey for gathering employment and graduate school admissions data from new college graduates based upon prevailing national demands and standards.

The benefits of completing the survey include:

  • Opportunity to win great prizes
  • Communicate the value of your degree: The more value we can show your degree has, the more valuable your degree becomes
  • Helps us identify employer partnerships resulting in increased recruiting opportunities for future Ambrosians
