This chapter discusses the powerful campus culture of hedonism and sociability and how this focus gives the lie to the college narrative of freedom and pluralism in Muslim American women's experience. It also highlights the Orientalist and essentialist discursive construction of Muslims on American university campuses, and discusses what Muslim students do to comply with, resist, adopt, and exploit the prevalent Orientalist discourse that threatens to “spoil” their identities on campus.

Keywords:   female college students, Muslim women, hedonism, sociability, freedom, pluralism, Orientalist discourse
