My niece finished her freshmen year in college. She has a 4.0, but a fail in socializing. There weren't many Muslims on campus and they grouped off by nationalities. She met a few non Muslims, Christians that she went to the movies with and shopping.
We are all pooling our money so she can return to college with a car. There is an active masjid in driving distance. She dresses modestly and wears hijab(scarf) and believes it turns off people in wanting to be cordial to her. There are some Muslim girls that dont wear scarves and fit in. During Ramadan, she hosted a few events, but that was the extent of her contact. She spent most of her time studying and volunteering.
Are there any Muslim students that can offer advice? We don't want her to become part of the enviornment. One student from our masjid, stopped dressing Islamically and her pictures are not at all modest. She is very popular, and we dont want my niece to compromise her values, but we want her to be happy. My sons have not had this problem
