Students from first and second year Arabic classes in the Critical Languages Program (CLP) visited the Mosque located on Court Street in Utica on Dec. 4. They were accompanied by Mireille Koukjian, instructor of Arabic; Ahmad Alshorman, Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant; Mary Beth Barth, director of the CLP; and Aaron Spevack, visiting professor of religious studies.

The students had the opportunity to listen to Friday's prayer followed by a tour of the prayer hall by Imam Ahmedin Mehmedovic. Following the visit to the Mosque, the group invited the Imam to their planned lunch at the Phoenician. Everyone enjoyed the delicious Middle Eastern cuisine before heading back to Hamilton.
