Dr. Yari Johnson came and talked tonight about how to make fresh bread. Not only is it economical, but when people smell fresh bread baking, endorphins are released. He taught us that even when you think you’ve messed up your bread, it can still come out alright if you slather it in butter. Thank you so much to Dr. Johnson for coming to Southwest Hall, and thank you to everyone who came down to make some fresh bread! I hope you all enjoyed the experience as much as I did.
As finals are quickly approaching, I would like to draw your attention to the newest bulletin board in our hallway. It features advice from professors across our campus. I hope these tips help you to make the most of this coming finals week, good luck 1 West. 17
I hope those of you who were able to come with me to the International Film Festival that was sponsored by the university in conjunction with Avalon Cinema. I personally really liked the movie we went to “May Allah Bless France”. It was very interesting to see the way Regis was able to turn away from a life of crime using French Literature and Sufi Islam. I also found that Dr. Wraugh had a lot of good points during the discussion following the movie.
Thank you to all of you who came to the faculty forum titled Is Islam (In)Consistent with Democracy? it was a wonderful talk given by Dr Shar Sappleton about Senegal, which is a democratic country that has a population that is primarily Muslim. She talked about how democratic societies can function and thrive when most of the population practices the Muslim faith.
