Thanks for checking out Akron's chapter of the Secular Student Alliance! We are a student group for atheists, agnostics, humanists, skeptics, and those who are questioning their supernatural beliefs. We meet in the College of Arts and Science room 139 from 5-7 PM every other Thursday. 

This group's goals are to:

  • Provide a community for atheists, agnostics, humanists, skeptics, and those who are questioning their beliefs
  • Organize activities such as forums for discussion, movie/documentary showings, guest speakers, and debates that educate students at the University of Akron and the surrounding community
  • Promote and practice skeptical inquiry, provide a skeptical perspective concerning issues on campus, and present counter arguments to those presented by groups on campus
  • Promote the philanthropic values of the humanist movement by engaging in community, charity and fund-raising events
  • Educate the community concerning secular denominations and promote a positive attitude toward secularism. It is important that we, as a group, work to actively dispel common misconceptions of individuals who think that it is impossible to lead a moral and good life without religion
  • Advocate for the separation between church and state
  • Be represented within the student community at events and in media, on and off of campus
  • Have a positive, lasting presence on campus

If you are looking for a community of atheists, or if you've ever doubted the methods of faith healers, ghost hunters, psychics, or astrologers, this may be the place for you.
