It is Ramadan, a month-long holiday whose practices are to remind Muslims to be aware of the impoverished. Because a key component of the month is fasting, many Muslim peers and faculty may not attend lunch or make a usual effort to grab snack before it runs out. However, during this lengthy holiday that encompasses most of May (approximately May 4-June 5 in 2019) abstinence from food and drink during the day is a key factor towards their devotion (as well as other things, like engaging service and daily prayer multiple times a day).

During this time of fasting for some, it is important for others to be thoughtful of the Muslim community here; and, with equal importance, take this time to develop a deeper understanding of the global Muslim community they belong to.
