What Are SC Grads Doing?
Our recent graduates are attending such prestigious private universities as Duke, Vanderbilt, Princeton, Yale, and Johns Hopkins. They also do well in public research institutions such as the University of Kansas, University of Nebraska, Kansas State University, and Texas A & M. Some choose to remain at Southwestern for an additional year to complete a master’s degree in business or education fields.
New graduates who entered the work force have been employed by such companies as the Wichita Eagle, Spirit AeroSystems, ConocoPhillips, Hospira, Dallas Children’s Theatre, Ledford Gage Lab, Koch Industries, and a wide variety of school districts, medical facilities, and not-for-profit organizations.
Many of the graduates who went into full-time employment found their jobs through our internship program. SC stresses the importance of trying out jobs and networking with employers before graduation. In fact, we believe so firmly in the importance of internships that we have a full-time coordinator of internships whose single task is to help students as they search for professional experiences while they’re still in school.
