We asked a classmate to describe her:
@ChuckCJohnson We had a good bit. They were very kind people, although if I recall correctly some of them also saw her as old-fashioned.

But Hoda Muthana isn’t the only terrorist to come out of University of Alabama.
In 2006 Omar Hammami, an Alabama-born ‘jihadist rapper’ joined Somalia’s terror group, al-Shabaab.
Hammami was the President of the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at the University of Alabama.
In 2007, the United States indicted Hammami on terrorism charges, and in 2009 this indictment was superseded by another, also related to terrorism, that charged Hammami with leaving the United States to join a terrorist organization. The United States has put out a $5 million reward and in 2012 added him to the FBIs Most Wanted list. Hammami was ultimately killed by al-Shabaab.
