Islam Awareness Week has come and gone once again, but the celebration of different groups, encouragement of civil debate and the acceptance of differences, may just be here to stay at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.
October 13 through the 20th was Islam Awareness Week on the campus of the University of Illinois Champaign. Events were held every day throughout the week that encouraged people of different genders, ethnicity and faith to come out a participate. Group prayers were held almost every day on the quad with a special trip to the Central Illinois Mosque on Friday afternoon.
