Pulled between his strict Muslim upbringing by his father and the normal social life he’s never had, Tariq Mahdi enters college in a state of confusion. New relationships with Muslims and non-Muslims alike challenge his already shaken ideals, and the estrangement with his mother and sister troubles him. With the help of new friends, family and mentors, he begins to find himself and open up to an Islam he hasn’t been exposed to. But when the attacks of 9/11 happen without warning, he is forced to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life. Sponsored by the Muslim Students Association and Center for Peace & Global Studies.

Also, on Sept. 22, the College will hold a one-day symposium titled “Thinking About 9/11 Ten Years Later.” More information about the symposium can be found here:
