Today students are looking towards their post-grad life before they even enter college. It’s part of the planning process; they consider all the programs the school has to offer and consider which one will one will put them in a position to succeed when they leave school. And when they do leave, where will they go? At McKendree, many graduates head to St. Louis, which is just a twenty minute drive from the school. A lot of them form connections in the city through internships or jobs during their undergrad years, and this leads them there after they graduate. Other students head to eastern Illinois to live in or around Chicago, some head home, and others travel across the country, or even the world, to begin their professional lives.
