Walking the Tightrope of Alcohol in Campus Culture

Muslim American Women on Campus

This chapter explores how participation in alcohol culture informed Muslim American women's identity construction and participation in campus culture. The quest for camaraderie was a reason either to seek full participation in alcohol culture or to avoid it altogether: a full participant in alcohol culture could possibly acquire normalcy in it, but a peripheral participant risked her status both in Muslim and in alcohol culture.

Keywords:   female college students, Muslim women, alcohol consumption, identity construction, drinking, pluralism
