On March 9, 2005 The Michigan Daily reported, "instead of learning it in a lecture hall or reading it in a textbook, students can participate in Muslim rituals and experience Muslim culture through a 'A Day in the Life,' presented by the Muslim Students’ Association. The program pairs non-Muslim students with a 'buddy' from MSA with whom they will be in contact and attend events from today until Friday. Over the course of the three days, participants will view an Islamic calligraphy exhibit at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, attend prayer in a mosque at the Muslim Community Association of Ann Arbor and have the option to wear a cap as some Muslim men do or the scarf as some Muslim women choose to wear."
