If you were to look at my Annotated Bibliography or my Review of the Literature, you would find my discussion of a study done by Abu-Ras et al that followed the drinking habits of Muslim American students in higher education. It was concluded in the study that Muslim American students were less likely to drink than their non-Muslim peers. This was thought to be so, because abstaining from alcohol is an important religious moral value of Islam. However, in my interviews I found that students' personal values far outstretched just those dictated by their religion. While a few students did express that they did not drink alcohol, others did not list that as a reason for not participating in Greek Life. A few of the students expressed that they saw Greek Institutions as a sort of conformist culture that they did not wish to be a part of. Other students expressed that they were not very strict about alcohol abstinence, or that they were particularly "liberal" Muslims. And yet others expressed that they did not agree with how fraternities objectify women and make it such a normal expectation for immodest ways of dressing that it's almost a requirement to be let in to frat parties. Some students had qualms with the "fakeness" of Greek institutions, while others who identified as Muslim did not really see a problem with Greek Institutions at all. In general, there was a very mixed feeling toward and about Greek Institutions, and varying degrees of religiosity in those value differences per se. Many people even spoke very differently about multiculturalism: what they defined it as and the varying degrees with which they saw this ideal realized in Greek Institutions on campus. This speaks to the overwhelming complexity of identity and experience, and how incredibly complicated and even misguided it is to make generalizable claims about groups of people and groups of experiences as a social scientist.
