This study reports on longitudinal qualitative data of 17 recent college graduates' experiences with ideological diversity. Findings indicate that recent graduates recognize their ideological bubbles, take steps to break out of them, experience work as an important context for ideological engagement, and suggest their collegiate experiences underprepared them to engage with those who hold differing ideologies.
