This week’s featured Affiliate Group of the Week resides at the University of California Los Angeles and has been a stable beacon of student enlightenment since it’s inception. The Bruin Alliance of Skeptics and Secularists, better known as BASS, has had an exceptional existence, holding successful events and bringing in speakers from around the US. We had the pleasure of speaking with current member, Jenny Pohl, about the group.
Julie Mankowski, president of the George Washington Secular Society, is a student leader to watch! In just a few months as leader, she's helped build an active and engaged student group on the GWU campus. Julie is a regular blogger for CFI On Campus' The Course of Reason, and her group will be hosting Nate Phelps, ex-member of the Westboro Baptist Church and currently works for CFI–Canada.
Andrew Tripp, president of the DePaul Alliance for Free Thought (DAFT) and author of Considered Exclamations, did us the honor of answering a few questions about his student group. Next month DAFT is hosting Real World Atheism: A Panel on Godless Activism and Cultural Relevancy featuring Sikivu Hutchinson, Anthony Pinn, Ashley F. Miller, Stephanie Zvan, and Ian Cromwell.
We had the pleasure of sitting down electronically (aka via email) with Brandon Gerbig, active member of both the University of Saskatchewan Freethought Alliance and CFI Saskatoon, to ask him few questions about the student group on his campus for our Affilate Group of the Week series.
Stephanie Kaiser, current president of Colorado State University Leaders in Free Thought, shares stories from this week's Affiliate Group of the Week.
