Alternatively, Los Angeles, Calif. is home to some of the highest salaries — median pay is about $80K — which is an (obvious) draw for many University of Bridgeport grads.

When it comes to benefits, there is room for improvement — only one-third of alumni are paid for vacation and just one-fifth of alumni for sick time. A fair number of respondents set aside retirement funds in an employer-sponsored 401(k). Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; a strong majority of graduates are rewarded with health insurance and the larger part of alumni report dental coverage, too.
