We are pleased to announce this week's Affiliate Group of the Week, the Secular Student Alliance at the University of California, Santa Cruz. This group has hosted past Point of Inquiry host, Indre Viskontas, CFI board chair, Eddie Tabash, and will soon host Julia Galef. The current president, Rob Carmen, answered a few questions for us.
Andrei Semenov, the current president of the Secular Student and Skeptics Society at the University of Colorado Boulder reflects on the success and impact of the group over the past year.
Max Nielson, contortionist extraordinaire, and president of the Secular Student Alliance at the College of Charleston shares with us what the CFI On Campus affiliate at his school has been up to.
Jessica Argyle, president of Dixie Reason, Inquiry, and FreeThought shares her thoughts on how the group started and what they provide to the local community in her area.
Sonya Elango discovered the atheist movement when she stumbled upon PZ Myers' blog Pharyngula. After that, she knew she needed to find a local community of nontheists to join. When she learned that there was a now-defunct group at her school called the McMaster Association of Secular Humanists (MASH), she joined with some friends to revive it. Sonya Elango and Philip Lauman, two members, recently joined us for the Student Leadership Conference in Amherst, New York. We know they they will take the skills they learned back to Hamilton, Ontario to do amazing things!
