DePauw Muslim Life
The Muslim Student Association at DePauw University
The DePauw Muslim Student Association (MSA) is the center of the Muslim community at DePauw. The MSA creates ties that allow our Muslim students to feel connected to their religious and community identity. DePauw students, faculty and staff gather on Fridays for community service & prayer at the Bartlett House Center for Spiritual Life.
One of our biggest Muslim holidays is Eid al-Adha. Every year, in celebration to it, MSA hosts a banquet filled with ethnic food and music. The MSA also hosts Iftar meals and Quran study. MSA also encourages anyone to join them on their trips to the mosques in Plainfield, the Islamic Society of North America.
Staff from the Center for Spiritual Life, and the MSA Faculty Advisor help the group to find appropriate funding for their events, encourage the religious development of our Muslim students, and offer spiritual care as appropriate.
