Their CEO and COO presented the findings of a massive study of 30,000 college graduates done by Gallup and Purdue. The study sought to determine which college experiences correlated with “great jobs” (defined as successful and engaging careers) and “great lives” (defined as thriving in overall well-being) after college.
