When the news of Osama bin Laden’s death was announced May 1, college students accounted for a majority of the cheering crowd that descended on the streets near the White House.

Jordan Denari, a sophomore at Georgetown University was not among the revelers. She talked about it with her friends, including one of her roommates from Pakistan, and they didn’t feel right about celebrating someone’s death.
Denari gets the chance to talk about contemporary and religious issues on a pretty regular basis in the university’s Muslim Living-Learning Community where she lives.

She said the on-campus residence with 24 Christian and Muslim students provides plenty of opportunities for “unstructured dialogue,” which, as she put it, “often happens when I should be studying for my econ(omics) exam.”
