On February 17, 2004 The Yale Daily News reported, "In the past decade, Muslim communities have grown significantly across the nation. Yale is not an exception. As the Muslim student body continues to expand, the Muslim Students Association has grown. As the only Muslim student organization registered through the Yale Chaplain's office, the MSA has worked to accommodate members of the University's Muslim community and educate other students about Islam. This week, the MSA is sponsoring Islamic Awareness Week, during which the group and co-sponsors will offer lectures and discussions, as well as a film screening and a poetry jam. The week's theme is 'Women in Islam.'"
