I first got involved with Secular Student Alliance after transferring colleges.
When I arrived at my new home, Georgia State University, I knew that I wanted to find some fellow atheist students. I had heard of the SSA through Hemant’s blog, so I looked at the group’s website to see if there was already an affiliate at my school. There wasn’t, so I decided to form Secular Panthers, which later became Georgia State’s affiliate of the Secular Student Alliance.
