At Monday night's FaithFest, students were able to learn more about the many different religions on campus.
An annual event hosted by student government’s Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Outreach Committee, FaithFest this year involved UNC Hillel, Ahmadiyya Muslim Student Association, UNC Muslim Students Association, Hare Krishna and the UNC Black Student Movement.
Karli Krasnipol, a junior and member of the Multicultural Affairs and Diversity Outreach Committee, said it was events like FaithFest that made her get involved with student government.
“It’s so important to be inclusive on campus especially with what’s been going on in the nation right now and internationally with things of that nature,” Krasnipol said. “It just makes sense to have things like this on campus where everyone is invited to learn about each other’s cultures and religions because if we don’t all try and understand each other, where does that leave us as a student body? That doesn’t leave us united, that doesn’t leave us feeling comfortable and wanted on campus. So for me, it makes me feel included on campus.”
The atmosphere at FaithFest felt inviting, with the different groups mingling and talking with each other and attendees.
