The talk will last for about 35-40 minutes with about 15-20 minutes for Q&A. The event is completely free and open to everyone.
The presentation is brought to you by the Secular Student Alliance and funded by the Student Government Association. Special thanks to the Political Science Department.
We are an atheist/agnostic/freethinkers/humanist/etc social group for lively discussion and perhaps a bit more. Anything is open for discussion at our meetings. Meetings are varied in different settings and some are family friendly (a coffeeshop or a library) and other meetings are simple bar nights. So if you're interested in an interesting conversation where you can openly talk about anything you want, this may be the group for you.
Any feedback is welcome, and if you have an idea for a meeting just bring it up and we'll probably make it happen.
