When you think of fraternities, the first things that usually come to mind are house parties and keg stands, not kufis and prayer rugs. But the brothers of Alpha Lambda Mu — or Alif Laam Meem, as they are also known — are out to change people’s ideas of fraternities, as well as their perceptions of young American Muslims.
ALM, the first Muslim fraternity in the U.S., was founded last year by Ali Mahmoud, a junior at the University of Texas, Dallas. Since then, chapters have opened at Cornell University and University of California, San Diego, and there are plans to expand this fall at San Diego State and the University of Florida.

London-based artist Rebecca Jewell creates beautiful pieces that combine her interests in anthropology, natural history, and art.

The winning entry to build China’s Pavilion at the Milan Expo 2015 is a stunning space called Land of Hope. Designed in collaboration between Tsinghua University and New York-based Studio Link-Arc, the duo rejected the notion of a typical pavilion, and instead came up with a structure that resembles billowing fields of wheat. It’s a thoughtful and creative twist on the Expo’s theme, “Feeding the Planet - Energy for Life.” According to the architects, the project is centered around the idea that “hope can be realized when nature and the city exist in harmony.”
