Claire Coleman writes in the Pretoria(?) News about how young muslim women in the UK have to live a double like in the UK when they go to university: at home they are traditional good girls, at university they party until the early hours: drinking, smoking and experimenting with the hedonistic lifestyle of a typical British undergraduate. Maybe this quote from a young woman sums it all up:

"In the student bar, there was a promotion on alcopops. Never having drunk before, I was knocking them back. I hadn’t gone out with the intention of getting drunk or of kissing a man, but I did both. That pretty much set the tone for the next four years."
