Our Story

The Muslim Students Association is an organization committed to making Muslim students on the University campus feel comfortable by providing prayer locations and organizing events and religious celebrations, such as Ramadan Iftars, Eidrageous, the Interfaith panel and Islam Awareness Week, as well as others.

The MSA hopes that Muslims and non-Muslims can better understand each other and that Muslim students can have the resources necessary to their success in college easily accessible to them.

Group's principal activities, events, or programs:
Coordinating Islam-related events and celebrations for Muslims and non-Muslims.
Events include but are not limited to:

Welcome Dinnner
Ramadan Iftars
Islam Awareness Week
Interfaith Panel
Farewell Dinner
Weekly Jumma (Friday) Prayers
Daily Halaqas (group seminars)
Other cosponsored lectures and smaller events relating to Islam.

How this group's activities benefit the University community:
The MSA benefits the whole community, both Muslim and non-Muslim, by hosting and cosponsoring several interfaith and intercultural events, many of which have been co-hosted with other student groups and departments on campus.

Our goal is to reach out to the community on and off campus by creating and maintaining healthy dialogue. We make a full effort to enrich the community and we hope that even through the regular labeling and stereotyping of Muslims in the media, the activities we organize can help others understand what Islam truly is and what it means to be a Muslim.

How this group fits into its categories:
The MSA is primarily a Muslim student group but it is open to people of all cultures and backgrounds. Islam is a "color-blind" religion that has 1.5 billion followers worldwide all of different ethnicities and cultures, and so in that sense, the MSA is by default both a religious and cultural group. Our events also show that we are both religious and cultural.

How to get involved with this group:
To get involved with the MSA, you can:

Email us at [email protected] for more information. Also ask to be added to the listserv to receive the weekly MSA Newsletter which has important announcements about events, prayer times/location, volunteering opportunities, and ways to get involved with the MSA.
You can also contact one of the current board members directly.
Visit Coffman Room 236 for more information, to meet other Muslim students, and to find a place to pray.
