Returning to Study: Encountering the Culture of Your Institution

  • Diana Percy
Chapter

Abstract

Culture is a useful concept to encompass a particular group of people who share certain habits, beliefs, rituals and general way of behaving. How members of a culture see themselves and their relationship to the world is reflected by their use of language, aptly known in campus cultures as jargon. All jargon tends to be esoteric; in other words, it is designed for those who belong to the club and are ‘in the know’.
