Keeping Up With the Clubs: Muslim Student Association

The Muslim Student Association held an interest meeting on Jan. 12. Students group met in sponsor Suzanne Sink’s classroom 7-210. 

During the meeting, officers were introduced to the group and president Mariam Al Lebban showed a PowerPoint presentation of what MSA plans to do. There was lemonade and cookies for students who showed up.

About 10-15 students showed up to the meeting. According to vice president Zahra Ateeq, officers reached out to students through social media to spread awareness about the group. All students, regardless of religion, are welcome to join MSA, as the group’s goal is to educate and create a welcoming community.

“There’s a lot of misconceptions about the religion. So, [we want to] target that and educate people about it,” Ateeq said. “Also, just create a community where everyone is welcome.” 

The next meeting for MSA will take place Jan. 30 in Sink’s room 7-210.
