Many People Like Me on Your Campus


Summer is coming to an end, which means you or someone you know is getting ready for the school year.

In between finding their classes and learning to cook ramen in the coffee maker, they are going to be barraged with modern day crusaders hell-bent on forcing their beliefs onto new students. These will be anti-abortion protestors, alt-righters, street preachers, new-agers, and dozens and dozens of religious groups.

It’s open season for these folks, and they will be hawking their snake oil to everyone.

But that’s why the Secular Student Alliance is here, to be a voice of reason, skepticism and secular values on campus.

Check out our new video “Many People Like Me on Your Campus” to see and hear what we bring to a campus. Please share the video with any students who would be interested in joining or starting an SSA student organization.

Be sure to check out our Group List to see if there is an SSA group at your school, or if not, to find out how to start one!

Finally, September 1 is the deadline to apply for the Secular Student Alliance Annual Scholarships! Thirteen outstanding students will earn $2,500 or $1,000 for their secular and intersectional activism!

Make sure to share this with any secular students you know!

Matt's Top Five Recruitment Tips


Matt Enloe led an SSA group during his undergrad, at Oregon State University, and remains involved at University of Chicago Law School. He is also a member of the SSA National Leadership Council, a select group of students and recent alumni who are chosen annually based on their exceptional leadership and experience.

Hello, Secular Student Alliance leaders! A new year school year is coming soon upon us, and it's time to start thinking about how to approach it. As you start your preparations, here are five tips to help you along your way. Between undergrad and now law school, I've been a president of an SSA group for over four years, now entering my fifth, and I hope that sharing my experience can also help you succeed.

  1. Table early, table often
  2. Start social
  3. Pick your next leaders
  4. Don't overdo it
  5. Invest in your group, and they'll invest in you

Advance our values and build a better secular world


With the current political climate and the blurring of lines between religion and politics, the role of the Secular Student Alliance to support atheist, humanist, and freethinking students is even more important.

Not only must we provide a place for students to feel at home with their non-belief and counter the overwhelming religious presence at many universities, we must also advance our values and build a better, more just, secular world. The Secular Student Alliance is uniquely positioned to foster secular students to become secular activists and future leaders of this country.

By making a donation you help our students develop into activists and leaders.

When I think about the political paradigm in our country in 2017, I just have to shake my head in disbelief. We have a president who in 140 characters almost daily disrespects women, immigrants, and non-Christians, denies logic and facts from our intelligence agencies and scientists; and claims to be Christian.

Hello everybody!


I'm very excited to be joining you, the wonderful SSA staff, and this amazing organization. Before we jump headfirst into the fray, let me start by telling you a little bit about me.

I grew up in a Catholic family. My mother was heavily involved in the Church... but she didn't agree with its stances on every issue, especially its views about women and the lack of equality in the Church.
