Our students have been successful in securing positions at a variety of different organizations, and there are numerous stories we would love to share. However, we picked several from different years to demonstrate the breadth and depth of the skills students acquired and the job positions that they pursued.
Luke Thatcher ‘22 was an honors student, tennis team player, and actuarial science major. During his studies at Arcadia, he obtained an internship as a Retirement Service Center Analyst at Willis Towers Watson through the department’s career fair.
Madison Kuduk ’21 was a double math/CS major. She conducted multiple research projects in the bioinformatics area and, thanks to faculty contacts, landed a job offer long before graduation. She has been working as a software consultant at Pariveda Solutions.
Jennifer McGrogan ’17 has been working as a SAS programmer and, after climbing the ladder at her company, she has begun hiring current Arcadia students. Jennifer originally entered as a prospective engineering major and later discovered her passion for SAS programming. Our department offers a flexible program in which students can easily switch between majors as well as add new majors and minors. That is exactly what helped Jennifer realize her potential in the intersection of computer science and statistics.

David Jacobs ’14 was a math major and engineering minor. He went on to Columbia where he received his engineering degree. David has had a very successful career as an underwater engineer inspecting the safety of major underwater structures in New York City.
Heather Shappel ’11 was a double math/CS major at Arcadia. She went on to earn her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from Boston University, followed by a post-doc at Johns Hopkins University. She has been working as a professor of Biostatistics and Data Science at the Wake Forest University School of Medicine. During her undergraduate studies at Arcadia, Heather participated in an NSF-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program, and many of our students are well prepared to pursue such programs.
