College seniors will be entering a job market seemingly unlike any other next spring. Still, that doesn't mean that colleges and universities aren't preparing students for life after midterms and dissertations. Plenty of schools across the country are setting up virtual job fairs, providing online office hours for career development, and reaching out to companies to create co-op programs for potential student hires. And while finding high-paying jobs might be harder than in years past, there are plenty of schools that have a history of placing their graduates into big companies.

Stacker compiled a list of the colleges whose graduates earn the most, using 2020 data from PayScale. Colleges are ranked by the highest mid-career earnings, with ties broken by early career earnings. Mid-career earnings are median salary for alumni with 10+ years of experience, and early career earnings are for alumni with 0-5 years of experience. Slides also include the percentage of students earning degrees in STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Many schools produce yearly reports of graduated students' placement, which usually includes if they are employed, attending graduate school, applying to graduate school, in a fellowship program, serving in the military, or searching for jobs. While some fields dictate some kind of prerequisite before full-time employment—like a paid internship or mentor program—it's not uncommon for new graduates to be thrown right into the fire and land jobs with major industry players like Amazon, Citi, and Google.

Did your school make the list? Read on to find out and learn other morsels of information, like the non-aquatic environments where Coast Guard trainees go on to work, which schools employ "micro internship" programs, and the surprising #1 on the list.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – U of A's United Way campaign closed with a strong finish the first week of November.

Originally set to end on Oct. 31, the campaign was extended a week to Nov. 6.

The campaign, "Now More Than Ever," launched on Oct. 1 with a goal of collecting $100,000 to assist area children and families in need. It ended by raising $80,065.

All donations to the U of A's United Way campaign go to the United Way of Northwest Arkansas, and 98 percent of that money goes directly to local programs, including children's centers, women's shelters, youth organizations, school districts, teen centers and more.

Deans Margaret Sova McCabe of the School of Law and Deacue Fields of the Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences were co-leads for this year's campus campaign.

"Everyone who worked on this campaign is grateful to all the faculty and staff who participated this year and to everyone who contributed," said McCabe. "And I want to thank all of the coordinators across campus who helped make this a success."

"The contributions from our campus community will support families, individuals and organizations in our area who are in need," said Fields. "This has been a challenging year for many, and donations from everyone associated with the university are greatly appreciated."

The U of A United Way campaign officially ended Nov. 6, but its website is still live, and online donations are being accepted until Dec. 31.
