UNH students fare better than many of their peers after graduation

DURHAM - A Gallup poll has come out with a survey that shows University of New Hampshire graduates are more likely to thrive than their peers.

"UNH grads are much more likely to be engaged in their jobs than graduates from large public universities. And they are even more engaged than graduates from the Top 50 universities in the U.S. News & World Report rankings," according to the senior consultant with Gallup

The survey was based on five key elements of well-being: purpose, social, financial, community and physical well-being.

Among the figures, 79 percent of the most recent UNH alumni are employed full time, a rate higher than college graduates nationally and graduates of large public universities,

UNH officials say the school is making career preparation and professional success a top priority.
