Graduates from Mines Increasingly Staying in SD

Officials from the School of Mines and Technology have presented research that indicates more and more graduates from the school are deciding to stay within the state rather than leave. According to the Rapid City Journal article, school administrators have shown that over the last two years, 40% of graduates are choosing to start their careers or go for advanced degrees within the state. This is up from 11% a couple of years ago and this trend is being attributed to increased efforts by local and state companies to recruit graduates.
