First Destination Survey
(formerly known as Graduating Student Survey)

Each year, ESF conducts a survey of recent graduates to determine how many begin their careers immediately after graduation and how many have entered graduate school. The data collection for this survey begins before students have actually graduated and continues for twelve months beyond graduation. Each class is comprised of degree recipients at both the undergraduate and graduate levels from December, May and August.

Five Year Alumni Survey

ESF is launching a new initiative to follow up with alumni five years after graduation. Our goal in this effort is to get a detailed picture of the career paths and directions that our alumni have taken to help us prepare students for the best positive outcomes through their ESF experience.    

We are currently collecting survey responses from the graduating classes of December 2009 and May and August of 2010. Complete the survey to be entered into a drawing for one of two "ESF Memorabilia Baskets" sponsored by the Alumni Association:
