During Spring Quarter of 2004, a random sample of recent graduates of Western Washington University were mailed a survey asking about their current work and educational pursuits, expectations, and their experiences at Western. The survey replicated items from previous surveys conducted on a biennial basis. This report provides the distribution of their responses on each of the survey items. In all, 527 alumni responded to the survey out of 1340 for a 39% response rate. (Respondents were sent a pre-survey notification letter, followed by the survey, a reminder and a second survey if they’d not yet responded.) Respondents tended to have earned better grades at WWU (3.24 vs. 3.12 for non-responders), be Caucasian (82% versus 72% of non-responders) and be female (66% vs. 50% of non-responders).
