What Alumni Earn

In 2012, EWU had an independent third party perform extensive research on EWU alumni's salaries and job satisfaction. The company looked at alumni who had graduated in 2009.

  • Alumni had salaries that matched the national average for college graduates.
  • Alumni felt EWU had prepared them for career success.
  • Alumni were happier than other college graduates in nearly every category of job satisfaction.

You can find all the details and graphs at EWU's institutional research page.

Alumni Give Back

Alumni contribute to scholarships, campus building projects, program funding and more, and many EWU  students start giving back to the university even before they graduate. The Eagle commitment to philanthropy and giving is a matter of pride among students and alumni alike.

Alumni also connect you to jobs through special programs like the EWU Young Professionals Network  (EWU YPN) and a lifetime of access to EWU's Career Services. In fact, the EWU YPN is the most active and successful college networking group in the region.

It's also true what they say: Eagles watch out for each other.
