Thank you so much to everyone who came out to our first Rowan United event with the Muslim Student Association (MSA). Hillel and MSA joined for dinner at the Hollybush Mansion on campus. Hollybush is a historical site on campus where President Johnson met the Russian Ambassador for peace talks during the Cold War.
Unfortunately, in 2017… world peace is still something we need to talk about and facilitate. Religious conflict is ever present and it is up to us to end it. At Rowan United, Hillel and MSA celebrated how similar our religions really are and made a commitment to working towards a future of religious acceptance together.
We were so happy to see so many people turn out for this important event, including President Houshmand and Dean Jones. Rowan United will forever be an annual event here at Rowan University and we are looking forward to next year’s event.
