Transcript Cultural exchange Senior computer science major Fahd Khan explains a display to passersby on Islamic Awareness Day. This was an opportunity for Muslims to share their beliefs and traditions with the rest of the students on campus. Photo by Kena Alvarado CMPUS Students express their beliefs in various yajs In observance A student receives ashes on her forehead on Ash Wednesday in the A.D. Bruce Religion Center. Ash Wednesday signified the beginning of Lent, and was taken from the Scripture, "Dust you are, and dust you shall return." Photo by Lorrie Novosad 44/ Student Life As students left home to gain an education, broaden their horizons, and prepare for their future, they took with them many things from home. Among those things are clothes, money, and maybe a piece of furniture or two (if they were lucky). They also brought with them their heritage, their traditions, and their faith. There was an astounding variety of beliefs held by the students at the University. Aside from the many major religions represented, students had different ways of practicing those religions. Some students dressed according to guidelines given by their beliefs; others wore jewelry to express their faith, and still others wore no sign at all. Some practiced their religion privately, while others attended regular services. For students who lived on campus, there were many opportunities to meet up with people of shared beliefs. There were on-campus Bible studies, Muslim services in the A.D. Bruce Religion Center, and many special events orchestrated to observe various holy days and celebrations. Many students formed smaller, individual groups in order to worship together. These groups often met in dorms or in one of the popular meeting places on campus, such as the Cullen Fountain. wmm With such a large number of students, it was sure that newcomers could find others who chose to worship as they did. And no matter what faith they espoused, the diverse nature of the student body allowed them the confidence to practice that faith openly and in whatever way they chose. Story by Ashley Grubbs A solemn occasion A group of students gather in rememberance of the September 11th tragedy. In times of crisis, students often found their faith to be the only refuge from the uncertainty and sadness they faced around them. Photo by Pin Lim c anipns JTveligKons 45
