Harvard Cooperative Society, Cambridge

4.1
#2 of 8 in Shopping in Cambridge
In the 1950s, the Harvard Muslim community consisted of a few foreign graduate students. It was at this time that Syed Hossein Nasr, a doctoral student in Islamic cosmology and science, and Yusuf Ibish, a post-doctoral student working on translating the works of the Muslim historian Ibn Khaldun, recognized the need for a student organization to serve the Muslim community and to advocate for it to the administration. The Harvard Islamic Society was established in 1955 to fill this role. American-born Muslim students first enrolled in the university in the 1970s, and by the late 1980s, the Islamic Society had grown into a vibrant organization with a substantial enrollment of both Muslim undergraduate and graduate students.

  • Two folded Coop facing the Harverd Square and Coop just off the corner. Square's Coop is full of books! The atmosphere is Harry Potter-like, brown-based inside the shop. The stairs in the back are also Harry Potter! Another Coop is just a supermarket, and the 1F is full of Harverd Wear! It is uniqlo of the maroon color. I bought a Food Parka (as a souvenir for my self) and a Harverd Bear (a .20) with a hoodie that was matched as a souvenir for my wife. I'm satisfied.
