On February 24, 2006 The Johns Hopkins Newsletter reported, "College students from across the country gathered on Feb. 16 for the second annual National Conference of College Multifaith Councils, called Coming Together 2, sponsored by the JHU Campus Ministries and the Interfaith Council. '[Coming Together] was started last year at Princeton University, and this year we decided to feature it at Johns Hopkins. Our goal is to encourage students into constructive dialogue about interfaith communication and interaction and to highlight its importance on college campuses across the nation,' event organizer senior Babak Mostaghami said. Mostaghami reported success in attracting a similar student response as last year's event which drew 80 student representatives from national universities and colleges... An entirely student-run event, Coming Together was formed as a venue for students around the nation to learn more about interfaith councils. Many students come with the hopes of founding an interfaith council on their own campus and learning more about pre-existing councils from other students."
