University can be a daunting prospect and for a Muslim student an especially tricky period. Fresher’s week, in particular, can prove to be a quantity of unknowns and a difficult time as students try to involve themselves in college life whilst staying true to their own religious and personal beliefs.
To help Muslim students settle in as quickly as possible we’ve organised a system of college representatives to aid your integration and help you to adapt to your new academic and social surroundings. They’ll let you know about the ISoc events going on during the week, give you your week 5 welfare packs (to help you along with week 5 blues) and of course just be there as a friendly fellow Muslim face for you in your own college! The ability to speak to someone who has been through the same experiences can be extremely heartening and the prospect of an approachable face – speaking from personal experience – is reassuring.
If you can’t see a rep for your college, don’t worry! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Haneen – our SAO) and we should be able to get a rep from a nearby college, or a member of shura, to act as your rep.
If you have any questions about Cambridge please do get in contact with your college rep via email (their email@example.com)
