Abstract

This article argues for an alternative conceptualization of college student departure and critiques models of college leave-taking and statements from college administrators to demonstrate how, from an anthropological perspective, a "social integrationist" theory has misinterpreted fundamental terms such as "rite of passage." Issues that should be considered in a cultural analysis of student departure are discussed.
