Muslim students feel at ease at Lipscomb University

Lipscomb requires chapel attendance and Bible study classes, but Muslims feel comfortable there. (Photo by Dipti Vaidya, The Tennessean, via www.tennessean.com)

The Tennessean in Nashville reports:

Every morning before school, Tewar Zeki and her mother pray together, as all observant Muslims are required to do at dawn.
Then she packs up her books and heads to Lipscomb University for a call to prayer of another sort.
Zeki is part of a small but thriving group of Muslim students who have found a home on this small Church of Christ-affiliated campus, where chapel attendance is mandatory and Bible study classes are a prerequisite for graduation.

Also, read a 2010 story on Muslim students’ perceptions of Lipscomb from lumination, the university’s official student news outlet.
Question for readers: Do other universities associated with Churches of Christ serve Muslim students?
