The Muslim Student Association will be hosting the Hijab Day Challenge next Thursday, Feb. 27. This is an all-day event in which women of any faith or culture are encouraged to participate by wearing a headscarf.
MSA representatives will host an informational session from 12-2 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 26 at a table in the Morris University Center. During this time, students are welcome to visit, pick up a headscarf for Thursday's event and learn how to wear one. Women wanting to participate should bring a straight pin or safety pin to keep their scarves from falling off.
According to MSA President Nasir Almrasi, hijab is a term referring to modest dressing for men and women, but this event will focus more on the headscarves that are worn by Muslim women who choose to do so.
