MEET A MUSLIM
There are many Muslims (native or foreign born) who attend this campus. You can locate them in many places such as:
Jack Brown Hall (studying business/computer science), or around the College of Education (getting an M.A. in a subfield of education) or around the College of Natural Science studying fields such as Public Health/Nursing, or close to the Yasuda Center Building (this last group is usually made up of foreign students who attend our campus to learn English before they get admitted to pursue a degree).
