This "First Look" presents findings from the 2008-09 Baccalaureate and Beyond Longitudinal Study (B&B:08/09), which describes the enrollment and employment experiences, 1 year after they graduated, of a national sample of college graduates who completed a bachelor's degree in the 2007-08 academic year. The tables in this report provide a sampling of the data available on graduates who earned their first bachelor's degree in 2007-08, presenting information on their undergraduate enrollment, including time to degree and education financing; postbaccalaureate enrollment and employment, particularly employment in teaching; and student loan repayment 1 year after completing college. B&B:08 is the third in a series of studies of bachelor's degree recipients that have previously covered 1992-93 graduates through 2003 (B&B:93) and 1999-2000 graduates through 2001 (B&B:2000). This report is organized as follows. The first section presents key findings from the set of detailed tables that follow. Tables 1-2 provide information on the demographic and undergraduate enrollment characteristics of 2007-08 bachelor's degree recipients. Tables 3-4 examine some of the resources--time taken and money borrowed--that graduates used to complete their bachelor's degrees. Tables 5-8 address postbaccalaureate activities and outcomes: education, employment, income, and participation in or preparation for K-12 teaching. B&B:08/09 Technical Notes and Methodology are appended. (Contains 17 tables, 3 exhibits and 13 footnotes.)
