Non-Muslim students at New York’s Union College have participated in the second annual hijab for a day, sharing the experience of Muslim women donning the Islamic headscarf.

''I had a few people that I am friends with ask me about the hijab,'' Julie Fishman '16, who participated in Hijab for a Day, told Concordiensis, the students' newspaper of Union College, reported on Thursday, February 27.
