The extreme cold temperatures on Wednesday provided members of Purdue’s Muslim Student Association an opportunity to warm relations with the community.

The students offered free coffee and donuts to all who passed by the Islamic Society of Greater Lafayette.

Outreach Director Enosh Kazem, a West Lafayette native and Purdue food science graduate student, organized the “Meet a Muslim” event.

Members of the Hawthorne Ridge Neighborhood Association are raising concerns about a possible Islamic Center in the unincorporated area of Tippecanoe County.

Association President Tom Fackleman says that type of project could disturb the current landscape of the community, and might cause drainage problems.
