First Destination Report
Albion College is interested in what happens to our students once they graduate. Each year the Career and Internship Center surveys graduates to gather information on what they are doing in the areas of employment, graduate / professional school, and volunteer service. This information is used by the Career and Internship Center and other departments at Albion College to continue to change and improve the services we provide our students and alumni.
First Destination Reports
We want to include you in our next First Destination Report! Please make sure to check your Albion email in the fall for the survey request.
Ten Years Out
The College also recently completed a survey of the class of 2001 to see where alumni are on their career paths ten years after graduation. The results are part of a new brochure that includes profiles of recent alumni and describes the benefits of an Albion hands-on educaiton.

Information for Alumni
Albion sees alumni returning to campus for a multitude of reasons – to give back to the campus in some way, to enjoy the intellectual atmosphere, to listen to the lectures, reconnect with the faculty and staff, and because it is a special place to all who have spent time here.
