Hannah Gardner wears a traditional hijab while having a pin attached with the hashtag "#WorldHijabDay" on Feb. 1. Students and faculty members celebrated World Hijab Day, an annual event, that celebrates Muslim women. “I am personally not a hijabi, but World Hijab Day, for me, is a good way to show solidarity to Muslims and hijab-wearing Muslims,” Adjei Nyua, a member of the Muslim Student Association, said. “People tend to judge others for what they are wearing and we, as women, endure that on a daily basis”.
