What are you doing after graduation?

Wright State University asks soon-to-graduate students and recent graduates to share what they are doing after graduation, by completing and periodically updating their survey responses in the year following graduation.

Students and recent graduates may update their information as post-graduation plans evolve. Access to survey remains open for one year after graduation.
