The Penn Sikh Organization is featured in The Daily Pennsylvanian as this campus group of Sikhs reaches out to their broader community:

Outside Bodek Lounge there is a pile of shoes — inside, a group of barefoot students. Some are wearing turbans, others are wearing bandanas. Some have beards, others are clean shaven. All are participating in a langar, or community meal, to commemorate the six Sikhs that were murdered in the Wisconsin temple shooting this past August.

As students of all backgrounds enter Bodek, Sikh students welcome them in and ask them to sit on a white cloth on the floor.
