SEC alumni feel stronger school ties than graduates of other conferences

The Southeastern Conference and its member schools are know for many things. As seen in the video above each university has distinct traditions tied to athletics, and quality athletics is synonymous with the SEC.

Gallup did a survey of college graduates and found the following...

SEC graduates are more likely to be emotionally attached to school.

SEC alumni are more likely to feel prepared for life after college.

Alumni attachment is directly related to one's well-being and workplace engagement.

"Emotionally attached" is fully term, so let's quantify it: Alumni attachment among graduates of SEC schools is nearly twice as high as that of graduates of other four-year colleges and universities nationwide (18%).

"Four in 10 SEC grads strongly agree that their college was the perfect school for people like them, and 38% strongly agree that they can't imagine a world without their school. This compares favorably against the 32% of non-SEC college graduates nationally who strongly agree that their college was the perfect school and the 22% who strongly agree that they can't imagine a world without their school."
