Muslim Student Association
The Muslim Student Association is a diverse group of Muslims on campus coming together to promote peace and interreligious dialogue. They strive to make a positive impact in the community by hosting lectures, group discussions, charity events, and much more, to highlight the Muslim perspective at the University of Dayton. Contact the MSA via email at or visit their Facebook page.
