A Union education gives graduates one of the top salary earnings potential among liberal arts colleges, according to the latest study by PayScale Inc., a Seattle-based compensation analysis firm.

Union alumni have an average starting salary of $47,200 and a mid-career median salary of $97,100, according to the study, which used data from surveyed employees.

This marks the second straight year the College has placed among the top colleges in the survey of which colleges offer the best return on investment.

“Our 2009 report shows that a degree from the right college or university in the right major can have huge and lasting benefits, from the start of a career to the mid-point," said Dr. Al Lee, of  PayScale. “This is especially important to remember today, when the economic fundamentals are so weak and job prospects are so uncertain.”
