My name is Ellen Lundgren, and I am the Secular Student Alliance’s Regional Campus Organizer for the Texas Region. I want to share with you the amazing success story of an SSA affiliate group at a religious school, Texas Christian University (TCU).
The TCU Freethinking Frogs are a very new group, starting up last semester despite some alumni and conservative news outlets pushing back. However, with support from their campus administrators, the secular community, and the SSA over the summer months, they are ready to hit ground running this fall.
These months of hard work really paid off while tabling to welcome new students at their student involvement fair, when over 50 students signed up to join the affiliate group! This success would not be possible without the months of coordination and planning with their membership and the national office.
Our students work hard all year to ensure success on their campuses. You can support their work the whole year by becoming a Monthly Supporter today.
The free tabling supplies from the national office were especially helpful. As student leader Alexis Lohse said, “The ample supplies and freebies made for good conversation pieces! Even students that didn’t want to sign up loved the Darwin stickers!”
