What happens to students who graduate from Southern Utah State College?

Jack Cannon, director of placement at SUSC, keeps tabs on the graduates to see how they fare. The job is less than easy and is complicated by the amount of time needed to track down the students, he said.Of the 430 students who graduated in 1989, some 312, or 72 percent, were employed by December 1989. Of the remaining number, 72 were continuing their education in graduate school or other advanced programs, 12 were on missions or had become homemakers, and 32 said they were still seeking employment.

Of those who had entered the work force, Cannon said, 213 of them, or 68.3 percent of the total number employed, were working in Utah. Nevada was next in line with 32 graduates, or 10.3 percent employed there. Twenty-two, 7 percent had gone to California, 16, or 5.1 percent, to Arizona, and the rest of them, 29, or 9.3 percent, were scattered among the remaining 46 states. Only two graduates were unaccounted for.
