Title:Muslim Dorms
Author(s):Bhatti, Umar
Subject(s):Muslim Dorms
University Housing
Abstract:I interviewed Muslim students on campus regarding the new Muslim dorm construction project: CIMIC Annex. I got their perspectives on whether they would prefer living in a Muslim dorm or public housing. I also asked students to learn if their parents would restrict them to living in a Muslim dorm or if they trust their children to make all the right decisions for themselves’ in public housing. I extended my research to CIMIC personnel regarding the new dorm project and ask about the plans for gender segregation and food arrangements. This research should provided insight of Muslims and their lifestyle preferences with the desire of diversity.
