Center for Career and Professional Development

Prospective Students

Congratulations on your upcoming college start! We’re glad you’re here to explore the ways the award-winning Southwestern University Center for Career & Professional Development supports our students and alumni.

Meet the CCPD

If you’re considering becoming a Pirate and will visit campus, we’re happy to meet with you to discuss your major, graduate study, and career exploration questions. We frequently host prospective students and their families during campus visits - just let the Admission team know you’d like to include our office on your itinerary. 

Use Our Web Resources

Our extensive online resources are public. In particular, we’ve collected the pages we think might be most helpful to you in the navigation to the left. We encourage you to look around.

What Do SU Grads Do after Graduation?

Our annual Post-Graduate Survey tracks new grads at their first destination (within a year of graduation). Every few years we also reach out to graduates 10 years out for a closer look at their career trajectories. Reviewing these outcomes can help you envision your possible future self.
