Who says we can't get know each other? ;)
Congratulations on your acceptance to Stanford and welcome to the Markaz! We wish we could have met in person, but we are excited to get to know you virtually in the coming weeks.
The Markaz is a community center dedicated to serving the broader Muslim community at Stanford, extensively and inclusively defined. For many, the Markaz is a home away from home. We offer a cozy space, plenty of hot chai, and engaging programming and events throughout the year. Our student staff and interns have organized many fun opportunities for you to get to know us during Admit Weekend.
We hope you’ll join us at the following events!
- yours truly, the Markaz staff <3

Join us over Zoom and learn about the Muslim community at Stanford from a diverse panel of students that includes current frosh and upperclassmen. The panel will break-out into smaller groups to give an opportunity for ProFros to get to know community members and other ProFros on a deeper level. We look forward to an interactive and engaging discussion.
