News and notes from the WGS program @ Fairfield

Hijab Day at Fairfield University

Fairfield University’s Muslim Student Association has planned a series of events in recognition of “Islam Awareness Week,” taking place from Monday, April 7 to Friday, April 11, 2014. The endeavor speaks to the University’s value of diversity on campus and its ongoing efforts to attend to the spiritual needs of its non-Catholic students by way of providing collaborations beyond the Catholic and Jesuit tradition.

The Muslim Student Association has asked us to invite women involved in WGSS to participate in Hijab Day on Wednesday. Women interested in participating can meet at the BCC Information Desk between 10am and 12pm; please bring a scarf.  The group members will help put the scarfs on. Participants then proceed to wear it of the rest of the day and reconvene again at 5:30pm in BCC 206 for a reflection and dinner.
