OUr project

The TCU Muslim Student Association is raising money to lay a foundation for an established presence at TCU through engaging student events and experiences. Our central goal is to take part in MSA Showdown, a series of competitions between MSAs at universities across Texas hosted in San Antonio. 

oUR mISSION

Our mission is to grow in our faith, create a sense of community for the Muslim student body, and give back to TCU and the larger Fort Worth Community.  

our story

The TCU Muslim Student Association is an organization which is trying to reestablish our presence in the TCU community. Without consistent funds and proper support, the Muslim Student Association has struggled to be a part of our campus. We now have a new Muslim Community Adviser, faculty and staff advisers, and strong leadership. The only element holding back the growth of our organization Is a lack of finances.

Regardless, we have been able to hold several community-building events, host weekly Jumma services, and create a support system for our current student members. Your help is important because as young Muslims in America we need a support system, and a means of positive interfaith discourse, especially with widespread misconceptions and xenophobia surrounding the Muslim Community.  

With your help, we hope to support each other, engage in interfaith work, grow in our faith, and to just have fun!
