April 05, 2023
About 40 people gathered in Club Z inside Trine University’s MTI Center on Friday, March 31, to celebrate the beginning of Ramadan by joining together for an iftar, a meal to break the fast, offered by the Trine Muslim Association.
Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, began this year at sunrise on March 22 and will end with sunset on April 20. It is celebrated as the month during which the prophet Muhammad received the first revelations of the Quran.
During the monthlong holiday, Muslims are encouraged to reflect and make a special effort to follow the teachings of Islam. A key aspect is fasting from sunrise to sunset, during which participants take in no food or water to direct their thoughts away from worldly activities.
Trine University’s Zollner Golf Course is ranked number 10 on the list of Top 25 College Golf Courses from the Golfers’ Choice Awards 2024.
It was a successful celebration for both Bo Jackson and supporters of Trine University as the annual Scholarship Gala raised nearly $2 million on Feb. 10, the largest amount raised since the event’s inception in 2004. The renowned athlete left the event not only knowing Trine, but leaving a lasting impact on the university and on those who heard him speak.
