What is the Rice MSA?

The Rice University Muslim Student Association is an open organization welcoming individuals from all backgrounds. We attempt to foster Islamic Awareness in our campus, as well as beyond the hedges. We are open to any suggestions and feedback that may better carry out our mission statement. The Rice MSA holds a variety of events throughout the year that cater to both the Muslim members and the general Rice community. These events include Fast-A-Thon, Ramadan iftars, Eid banquets, guest lecturers, and Islam Awareness Week, as well as community service events.

Mission statement

The purpose of the Rice MSA is to foster unity among Muslim students at Rice, to spread Islam Awareness across campus, and to engage in community service.
