Higher education leadership in both public and nonprofit sectors believe their students are prepared for life after graduation.
About 2/3 of each recent class of independent-college alumni and alumnae have chosen to remain in Ohio after graduation, roughly the same proportion as when they entered college.
Recent graduates of Ohio independent colleges are likely still to be in Ohio; each class's share of those remaining here after graduation is not only higher than that of all alumni/alumnae, but is at least as high as the share of Ohio residents in each class at enrollment.
Independent College Share of Ohio Undergrads and Alumni
More than two thirds of the undergraduates at Ohio's independent colleges come from the Buckeye State - and more than two thirds of the graduates are still here three years after graduation.
