If you attend college in Tennessee either at a two year or four year school or are the parents of Tennessee college students, you may be interested in this newspaper article hitting some points in a new study (dated April 3, 2007) on what happens when these students enter the workforce. The study was done by UT's Center for Business and Economic Research.

I think the most interesting item in the Associated Press article published on the Oak Ridger State News page is this:

College graduates working in Tennessee earned an average of $38,927 in 2005" regardless of the degree earned or length of time working in Tennessee." The average salary of everyone else working in Tennessee was $32,565, or 16.3 percent less, the study said.

If you are interested in reading the full 20 page study report, Part 1 is here:
