UW–Madison Working for Wisconsin: UW graduates stay in Wisconsin

Did you know? Almost 80% of in-state students end up living and working in Wisconsin in the years after they graduate. And almost half of all UW-Madison alumni call Wisconsin home. Animal sciences major Erin Roberge describes how important it is to stay in Wisconsin and how a career in her field will allow her to be near family.

The Working for Wisconsin campaign aims to correct common misperceptions about UW’s admissions, affordability, and employment of its graduates. We’ll be sharing new facts here in eCALS periodically, and you can also visit the Working for Wisconsin website to learn more. Please feel free to share widely and help us bust those myths!
