Celebrating the Islamic Month of Ramadan

The Muslim Student Association at Appalachian State welcomes the blessed month of Ramadan. Many people know Ramadan as a month in which Muslims refrain from food and drink during the day, but this holy month also represents an opportunity for spiritual growth and reflection beyond just practicing self-discipline through fasting. The past year has been very difficult for many of us. We wish you ease during these difficult times and hope that this Ramadan gives us all an opportunity to reflect, express gratitude, recommit to serving our communities, and remember our loved ones who may not be able to celebrate this holy month with us. Ramadan Kareem!

Sankofa Support Group

The Office of Intercultural Student Affairs would like to support all our students by creating a safe space for all to discuss, navigate and share concerns and issues experienced and lived in 2020 through a series of virtual conversations through our Sankofa Support Group (SSG). SSG's purpose is to facilitate connection between people despite their differences, mitigate conflict and provide emotional support to students during what has proven to be a tumultuous and stressful year as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the civil unrest caused by continued social inequalities and injustices experienced by our marginalized communities, the rise of unemployment nationwide, the upcoming 2020 Presidential Election and more.
