Abstract

Tinto and Goodsell report the findings of a qualitative case study involving Freshman Interest Groups (FIGs) at the University of Washington. The intent of the study was to determine in what manner participation in a FIG affected students' learning experiences, and how these experiences fit in with the broader environment associated with the first year of college.
