Muslim group seeks to break stereotype
by Bevi Edlund
In honor of Islamic Awareness Week, the Muslim Student Association (MSA) Thursday will present the Hijab Day Challenge to give students the experience of what it feels like to dress like a Muslim for a day.
"Hijab" is the Arabic word for "veil;" students will be able to pick up a hijab on the Titan Walk and wear it for the rest of the day.
Mona Bennani, president of MSA, said the main goal of the event is to defy stereotypes of Muslims.
