This article describes the process and results obtained from an alumni survey administered at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. Comparisons are made to similar surveys that have been implemented at other universities. The survey was administered to undergraduate and graduate alumni who graduated one year or five years earlier. Of the 2,763 alumni that were sent the survey, 34% responded. As found in previous research, alumni were satisfied with their choices of majors and considered their education to be worth their investment of time and effort. Lowest ratings were in the areas of academic advising and course availability. (Contains 4 tables and 12 figures.)
