Ramadan (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Ramadan is the 9th month of the Islamic calendar and is devoted to the commemoration of Muhammad's reception of the divine revelation recorded in the Qur'an. It is the holiest period of the Islamic year and includes strict fasting from sunrise to sundown. Each day ends at sunset with a celebratory Iftar, or breaking-of-the-fast.

The observance begins this year at sundown on June 17 and ends at sundown on July 17.

Off Campus
Off Campus - Oregon State Capitol

Learn why 2300 architects and engineers are calling for a new 9/11 investigation. Please join us for "WTC7 Awareness Day" at the State Capitol, in the lobby, 900 Court St NE, Salem, OR 97301. 8:00 AM-5:00 PM. Meet architect Richard Gage, AIA! Students are encouraged to attend! https://www.facebook.com/events/831086880313852/ Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11? On September 11, 2001, World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7) –a 47-story building NOT hit by an aircraft–collapsed at 5:20 in the afternoon. It collapsed symmetrically in less than seven (7) seconds at measured free-fall acceleration for over 8 stories or over 100 feet for 2.25 seconds. This fact was finally admitted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) when pressed by public review; however, they continue to ignore the implications of a “no resistance” free-fall through –what at least once was– the path of greatest resistance.
