Balanced Races – There are converts, or reverts, whatever you prefer to label them as. I would just say, Islam preaches diversity and non-judgmentalism and Zaytuna is proof to that. There are students from not only different ethnic backgrounds they also live in different states in the U.S. These merging in Zaytuna is healthy for the student, it creates a wider perspective.
Great for Muslim Students – Hoping to be America's first accredited Islamic College, the majors of Islamic Law and Theology and Arabic were unheard of even 5 years ago. To get the kind of knowledge as well as scholarly teachers of this caliber for the faith, you would have to travel to the Middle East just to get something close to this. Learning the vast tradition of my religion as well as various liberal art subjects such as history, rhetoric, political science, writing, etc. is a dream come true.
New Age Options Galore – Thanks to Zaytuna College's close proximity to Berkeley, we get a lot of organic, vegan, vegetarian options all over the place. Even restaurants that are not visibly vegetarian will offer vegetarian options to placate the high demand for such products. Being a vegetarian, this is a dream come true, as often being a vegetarian restricts the places you can go and the products you can buy.
Absolutely No Scene – Thanks to the religious affiliation of the school, the students at Zaytuna College take very seriously their commitment to God and the sins associated with illicit drug use. This I found creates an educational environment that allows me with a healthy lifestyle to grow and learn in, without compromising my personal beliefs. In fact, the opposite can be said as being around people that respect their bodies only increases and strengthens my faith.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
