Abstract: In an effort to better understand the intersection between space, place, and sexual identity mapping over time, this study utilized qualitative interview data to identify how the concepts of space and place that are present within our culture helped young women develop their sexual identities. This study focused specifically on the homosocial educational space of an all-women's college. This study consisted of a sample size of sixteen young women, each of them at a different stage in their college careers. This study will measure what factors played a part in each young woman's decision to attend an all-women's college, how new friendships are formed, how their decision to attend this college has affected their familial relationships, and what their college experiences have been like.
