Editor’s note: A previous version of this article stated Stevens’ Class of 2018 saw 81 percent of graduates secure first-destination outcomes within six months, however the 81 percent actually refers to the percentage of Class of 2019 graduates that secured first-destination outcomes as of graduation.
