Loyola University Maryland

The Rizzo Career Center


Each year Loyola asks our graduating class about their post-college status within six months of graduation. Each year, about 95% of our respondents have reported that they are working, attending graduate school, serving in the military or engaged in a post-college service program like the Jesuit Volunteer Corps or Teach for America.

In other words, nearly all of our graduates have landed in their "first destination" within six months of walking across the stage at Commencement.
