Wolosin, Myrna A.
The purpose of this study was to do a follow-up of some of the graduates of the honors program at Indiana University, to explore their current activities and career involvements, and to obtain an assessment of the honors program that is mediated by intervening experience and a sense of perspective of the students' college years. Results of the study show that: (1) 72.5% of the graduates involved are now attending or have attended and completed graduate or professional school and 87% of those students received some form of financial aid; (2) 77% of the respondents who are employed hold jobs in professional or technical categories; (3) income levels are uniformly low, with 70.8% earning $5,000 a year or less; (4) respondents consider themselves to be politically independent, and 70.7% vote regularly; (5) the respondents' evaluation of the honors program is uniformly positive with degree of certainty varying by major area; (6) honors program graduates felt that they were well prepared for their current activities; and (7) 75% of the respondents felt that their honors work was superior to their other work at Indiana University.
