Thanks, Minnesota!

I’m finally back home from the last leg of the Spring Break trip.

Thanks to Campus Atheists, Skeptics, & Humanists (CASH) for an awesome time last night:

You want an example of a well-run student atheist group? They’re among the best (and largest) groups in the country.

And it looks like I’m not done with my trips just yet.

I’ll be in Los Angeles in a few weeks (April 23rd) — more information on that soon.

And Greta Christina has apparently booked me for this time next year:

I love the last item in that picture :) The full schedule is here.

I’ll get to work on that talk soon…

  • Potco

    I know this was a joke, but I would actually really enjoy to hear several of these talks. Including the one you were booked for.

  • Killer Bee

    Communion wafers always remind me of ecstasy.

    Based on the picture, CASH needs to do better attracting some more girls…

    I took this photo!

    I thought the same thing as Jeff when I saw the pic- where are the women??? All the groups I’ve been to (including: Austin, Denver and San Diego) were nearly half women, but they weren’t college based organizations, not that it should make a difference.

    Can’t wait for you to come to LA- I’ll even brave the traffic! Do you have time to come down to San Diego? We would love to have you, and its only 2.5 hrs away from LA.

    Stacey — I don’t *think* I’ll be able to come to San Diego! But I hope I’ll get to see you in LA :)

    CASH has lots of ladies, these are just the people who hung around long enough to be roped into a picture. Trust me, of the local atheist group, CASH has a higher percentage of women then all of them.

    For those who might think for fighting for Heamant’s time, this was one of the better presentations I’ve seen. It’s told as more of a story with familiar elements people in the atheist community will enjoy, but also showcases what kind of stuff is actually being done, other than writing about irksome things, which are impacting the perception of atheists among the non-atheists in the country, whether you like it, or not. The presentation offers good real-world advice, especially for anyone with a large public presence who has to balance that with work responibilities.

    It wouldn’t be a bad idea to work on booking Mehta for next year now, before his Spring Break is all reserved.

  • Jenny

    I’m in!

  • Audrey

    Way to make me miss living in Minnesota/going to the UofM and being able to go to CASH meetings. The University of Chicago has no atheist groups :(

    Audrey — There is now an SSA group at U of C! Woo!

  • Jodie

    More relevant than the lack of photographed a-grrrls — college students look alarmingly young these days.
