USG Hosts Iftar Meal at Brooklyn’s Student Union

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–Brooklyn College held its first CUNY-wide Iftar dinner on Monday, Apr. 11, inviting Muslim and non-Muslim students to the celebration. The event was hosted by the school’s Undergraduate Student Government, the Islamic Society, Muslim Women’s Educational Initiative and Muslims Giving Back.

“In the spirit of Ramadan, being able to celebrate and break bread with a community of peers and not just Muslims was invigorating and beautiful. It reminded me of the power of the diversity [the] Brooklyn College campus holds and how important it is to make sure each community is heard and supported,” said Iqura Naheed, USG’s president, while expressing one of her favorite parts about the dinner.
