Hired Before Graduation


Highlighting great outcomes

Every year, UW-Whitewater showcases the many students who have landed a job, been accepted to graduate school, or started a company before they’ve even hit the stage at graduation.

Our Hired Before Graduation is both a campus tradition — many students tell us that they set a goal to participate during their first year — and a reflection of the way our faculty, staff and coaches invest, day in and day out, in the success of their students.

View the campaign to learn more about what our graduating students think about their experience at UW-Whitewater and the support the many people in their corner gave them along their campus journey.

You belong at a great university, and you deserve great outcomes. Visit Admissions to find out more about how you can succeed here.
