My new school is the most Muslim place I have ever been.


Orientation was kind of like: "You have a bazillion opportunities here! It's great! Take advantage! Talk to people! Make friends! Have Arabs over to your house! . . . . . if you're a man. Sisters, it's different for you. Cover your elbows. Cover your ankles. Maybe talk to the lady next door. Maybe? Uh . . . .?"

So it is not bad. But it is different.
