Students of different religions on campus gathered March 24 for the second annual Interfaith Dinner. Sponsored by the Center for Civic Engagement, the Office of Multicutural & International Student Programs, Hofstra Hillel, the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Newman Club and the Islamic Organization of Hofstra University, the dinner discussion focused on how people of different religions approach times of crisis.

For the second year, Anthony Lucci, a junior major in mathematical business economies, led the team of four students from each religious organization on campus and three interns organizing the event. Since January, Lucci placed almost 20 hours contacting both religious and cultural groups on campus to come and take part in the discussion. His work paid off since this year’s dinner had a 25 percent increase in attendance.
