Here is a piece from the About Us

Malaysian Student Association of Southern Illinois University Carbondale

There have been students in Southern Illinois University as far as 1972 and we will continue to be an integral part in SIUC. Why should you be part of the Malaysian Student Association (MSA) in SIUC?

The organization is one of the most active student organization in campus. We have many events in and out of campus. For new students, we are your family away from home and we help you settle down here in Carbondale.

The MSA is made up of students who strive for success and dedicated in promoting the Malaysian culture. The Malaysians here in Carbondale Illinois are one big family here in SIUC. We help new students settle in to their new home away from Malaysia. There are many things which need to be done when one person arrives from Malaysia. Some of our members have cars to help new members get around and we have a wealth of knowledge as some of our members have been here for a long time.

Secondly, we also have members from other countries in Southeast Asia. We have members from the Philippines, Laos, Indonesia and many more. We have a very good social network with other people around the world from Japan, Africa and Middle East. We regularly have gatherings and also host important festive events such as Eid Mubarak.
