Your Guide to College and Beyond


Please join us for a Seminar on “Guide to College and Beyond” developed by our young dynamic college-going community members (Dr. Shehzad Hassan Siddique, Alley Soliman, and Yayha Soliman) to help college-aspiring students.

Participate in an informative discussion for parents/students to gain tips on preparing themselves and their children for college. Help strategize the best course of action for their remaining time in school. This seminar will discuss how to prepare academically, financially, and realistically for those college-bound, and target middle school, high school, current college students, and parents. All are welcome to attend.

This Seminar will be held at Masjid Al-Nur on Saturday, June 17th after Dhuhr prayer at 1:30 PM Inshallah. We expect to finish the program by 3:30 PM.

A detailed agenda is attached below. Please join and spread the word.
