Assalamu’Alaikum VT MSA Family! The past year has been amazing one for the club. So much has been happening so we feel obligated to share it all with you. Here’s a look back at 2015 to present.

2nd Annual Blacksburg Spiritual Retreat

99 college students from across the state flocked to Blacksburg this past October for a simple purpose: reconnect with Allah. Sitting with Shaykh Mendes and Ustadh Ashanti for an uplifting and refreshing weekend. Not to mention enjoying some classic Hokie hospitality.

We Stand Together: A Gathering Against Hate

No message of hate or prejudice defines who we are. One message scribbled on a bathroom stall mobilized 1000+ Hokies to stand in solidarity on the drillfield. 1000 sponsored T-Shirts and Wristbands were disseminated throughout campus.
