Title:The Impact of Familial Influences on Islamic Practice on Campus
Subject(s):Religion, College, Muslims
Abstract:This research looks at the differences in religious practices at the university as compared to at home. Specifically, I researched students, ranging from Freshman to senior(undergraduate students)and evaluated the differences/similarities in their religious habits and practices and what obstacles, if any , do they encounter when trying to practice their religion. I looked specifically at the ways in which familial and other social networks impact Islamic religious practice on campus.
