Identity has been explored from a variety of lenses; theoretical, psychological, and sociological. It highlights the factors that help to distinguish people from others in their environment. Many theories that discuss identity go over the different stages of identity formation, from the young period of childhood, to adulthood. A sociological lens of identity combines the focus of identity formation and specific experience. A pivotal point in identity formation happens in the late adolescent or emerging adult stage where most teens have their first experience away from their parents, where they are challenged with new choices and opportunities for them to define themselves in a different light. With this, they also become more aware of their stance in society, and how others will interact with and perceive them based upon their prior experiences. This is not just socially in interactions, but also engaging with cultural identity, and the different factors of identity that attribute to the different activities one starts to do. This presentation reports in-depth interviews with Union students, asking them questions on their engagements before and during their time at Union, and how their experiences shaped them into the person they are today. Prevalent themes were identified that highlight the definition of identity for students at Union, as well as looking into how Union enables students to perceive themselves in a specific way.
