Abstract

This paper is an examination of student sojourn expectations for and reactions after return from a college level study abroad program. It seeks to expand knowledge on one aspect of sojourn adaptation, namely adjustment/ satisfaction. Selected sojourner characteristics such as gender, age, location of program, and previous transition experience were shown to influence sojourn experience. In addition, the relationship between sojourner adjustment and sojourn communication with host nationals was explored; a high level of interaction yielded a higher degree of satisfaction. Reentry satisfaction was investigated in terms of the same selected sojourner and sojourn characteristics.
