Magolda, Peter
Journal of the Freshman Year Experience & Students in Transition, v9 n1 p43-104 1997
Reports on an ethnographic study of college students' participation in an academic community, focusing on processes occurring in a residential college's week-long orientation: first day on campus; residence hall meetings; picnic and convocation; informal discussion of gender topics; dance; first day of classes. Examines issues of disorientation, intentional socialization, creating a common purpose, and making connections. (Author/MSE)
