MSA Boy’s Night

It’s the week before Reading week. It’s been brutal, Midterms on your mind and so much lovey dovey stuff in the air you practically had to a astaghfirullah your way through it all.

But that Benedictine-monk like discipline won’t last very long–and the only thing keeping you together is your mom’s food. We get it. The struggle real. Which is why we’re going to get seriously fun this Friday and make it all up to you.

JOIN US! For a (halal as much as possible) night even Valentine himself would wish he could name himself after.
Refreshments, Improv and a chance to be featured in MSA’s awesome photo collection!

MSA World Hijab Day

Asalamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,

On February 1st of every year, International Hijab Day is celebrated around 140 countries. This symbolic event encourages women of all religions and backgrounds to try on hijab – the Islamic headscarf- and experience it for a day! With recent waves of Islamophobia, this is also an opportunity to stand in solidarity with Muslim women and Muslim victims of hate crimes. The UBC Muslim Student’s Association invites you to join us this year in celebrating the hijab and uplifting Muslim women!

With the goal of spreading awareness of identity and unifying the UBC community through a shared experience of culture and connection, we invite you to our booth on the ground floor of the Nest this Wednesday from 10 am- 3pm to talk to some friendly Muslims, try on one of our colourful headscarves (for free!), or to learn more about the hijab and what it stands for. We look forward to greeting you!

We’ve got something for all ages so no one from the youngest child to the oldest uncle will be bored! There will sporting events such as soccer, badminton and ultimate frisbee for brothers and sisters. In addition, we are preparing a children’s program to make sure the kids are entertained!

Good food and good company are guaranteed regardless of weather, so bring your family and friends for this memorable summer day!
