    “Books Unbound II” Exhibit Visits Campus

    By: EMILY CHAPMAN CHAPMANE@MTMARY.EDU When we think of books, our minds generally jump to the books found in a library.

    Finding her way in a home far away

    by JOAN MUKHWANA mukhwana@mtmary.edu Naureen Fatima, born and raised in Pakistan, moved to Wisconsin seven years ago. Although she has lived here for years, Fatima still considers Pakistan her home. “I like it here, but the feel is different,” Fatima said. “I always feel that my past memories are living in my present.
