Muslim Life

St. Olaf College has an active community of Muslim students. Our Associate Chaplain for Muslim Life, Iman Jafri, helps to organize Friday Prayer, assists with the observance of holy days, offers programming and meets with students. In addition, the Muslim Student Association is a thriving student-led organization.

During the first semester of the 2020-2021 academic year, Chaplain Iman Jafri will offer a combination of in-person and virtual programming. This will include a mid-day prayer opportunity on Fridays and a mid-week opportunity for Muslim students to gather virtually to build community and discuss all matters of life.
