Muslim Student Association

The mission of the Muslim Student Association is to educate the College campus about Islam and Islamic issues, with the hopes that this will eliminate some of the stereotypes on Islam perpetuated after the tragic events of September 11, 2001. The Muslim Student Association has several goals: To foster unity amongst the Muslims on campus; to help non-Muslims gain a better understanding of the principles of Islam firsthand; to educate our Muslim members of the virtues of other religions represented on campus; and to participate in charitable events for the Gettysburg Community. The Muslim Student Association also hopes that such an organization on campus will encourage prospective Muslim students and students interested in learning about Islam to attend Gettysburg College.
