Huma Socials

In addition to our Global Iftaar initiative, we hosted many other fun activities in different cities. For example, in the past two years we hosted a few mixers with other Muslim alumni associations, including Columbia, Stanford, UPenn, and MIT in Boston and New York City. We hope that these inter-MSA socials will not only encourage new friendships, but also will serve as a platform for future collaborations such as volunteer initiatives and other partnerships.

In addition to socials around the country, we also host graduate student mixers at Harvard. We hosted our very first graduate student mixer in October 2012. In the past, the majority of HUMA’s active membership was comprised of Harvard College graduates. Muslim graduate student community frequently did not develop a strong tie to their MSAs mainly due to the lack of a common graduate student organization, as well as the short duration of Harvard’s graduate programs. In order to address this issue and introduce Harvard’s graduate students to HUMA, we hosted a social mixer on campus that brought together more than 50 graduate students and alumni. We distributed our inaugural newsletter at the event and received a lot of positive feedback about and interest in joining HUMA from the graduate student community.

In the upcoming few months, we are planning to host a few more inter-MSA, so please be on the lookout for our emails. Also, if you’d like to host a HUMA social in your city or have any suggestions for future events, please contact our VP Internal at
