With students from 54 different countries walking the halls, SHS is one of the most diverse schools in Ohio.

“Sycamore is really diverse compared to other schools and a lot of people don’t see that,” junior Amal Saeed said.

Along with a wide variety of cultures comes a wide variety of religions. One place where students can explore the different religions is Interfaith Club. The club seeks to teach those who are interested about the many religions that they might encounter in the halls.

By providing a nonjudgmental environment where students can openly discuss ‘sensitive’ topics, Interfaith Club members explore religions through different activities, trips to religious communities and guest speakers.

“We try to make [Interfaith Club] more interactive by getting the members to come up with what they want to learn and discuss,” Saeed said.

Entering its fifth year, Interfaith Club had its first meeting of school year on Sept. 30.

“Our first meeting was really successful. 20 people showed up, which is a good amount for us because we are really able to get everyone’s opinions and ideas,” Saeed said.

There is a lot planned for the club meetings this year and all of those who are interested are invited to join.
