This non-experimental quantitative study administered a survey to recent college graduates and examined correlations among their reported quality of life, experience of close relationships, job satisfaction, and demographic characteristics. The role of relationship as a lens in the decision-making of new college graduates to relocate was supported in the literature. The results showed no significant correlations between their choice to return to their hometown after graduation and their quality of life, experience of close relationships, or job satisfaction. Additional correlations among demographic characteristics demonstrated significance, but not strength. Suggestions for future research include a qualitative study, inclusion of social justice components, and expansion to populations in other states.
