Welcome Class of 2017!

Dear Class of 2017, Friends and Families,

As the Yale MSA, we are very excited to welcome new members to our community from the Class of 2017. Not long ago, I was in the very place you are in right now. MSA has been a fundamental part of my freshman year. I hope you experience the same sense of warmth from our community. We understand that Muslim students and their families often have specific questions or concerns regarding living on campus, or the college atmosphere in general. So please let us know if there is anything we can help you with. Both the MSA board, and our Chaplain Omer Bajwa, as well as members of the greater Muslim community at Yale are ready to welcome you and help ease your transition into this wonderful University!
Welcome aboard 2017!
Didem, CC’16
President of Yale MSA
