One year after graduation, Bucknell's Class of 2014 is earning a higher starting salary than any class before, with average salaries for 2014 graduates exceeding $50,000 for the first time and six graduates reporting salaries of more than $100,000.

Those figures are among the many highlights of the Class of 2014 Postgraduate Report, which by many measures marks the Class of 2014 as one of the most successful in Bucknell's history. Salaries increased over 2013 for graduates of both the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Engineering, as well as for the School of Management.

Of the 822 (of 833 total) graduates who responded to the survey, 72 percent said they'd found employment and 18 percent were attending graduate or professional school, both up slightly from the Class of 2013. Only 3 percent of graduates were still seeking employment, the same as in 2013.
