The most highly represented industry among alumni is the software development industry. Curiously, the high SAT results reported by Eastern alumni do not result in top-paid positions in the workforce — in fact, this group brings home rather low salaries. Eastern graduates see an average starting salary of $45K.


Home to a large number of Eastern alums, Willimantic, Conn. is by far the most attractive city for these former students.

Degree Major

Eastern grads who hold a Bachelor of Science in Accounting can expect to fare better than most fellow alumni, earning an average around $112K per year. A Bachelor's Degree is less advantageous in terms of earnings; alums with this degree are the lowest earners with a median annual pay of about $47K.


Project Management is a popular skill among Eastern alumni, with somewhere between a fifth and a fourth of workers reporting using it on the job. Former Warriors with Project Management experience garner salaries that are 147 percent more than other grads' salaries. Demonstrated ability in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Customer Service rank among leading skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

Both vacation time and sick leave are paid out for more than half of alumni. The vast majority of alumni take advantage of a 401(k) plan. Dental insurance applies to the larger part of alums, and nearly all graduates report health coverage. Graduates of Eastern Connecticut State University are also recipients of life insurance, flexible hours, tuition reimbursement, and a company-subsidized cell phone.
