Efforts are underway to start a chapter of the Secular Student Alliance at the University of Southern Mississippi. What the group-in-the-making most needs now are Southern Miss students who are interested in helping to form the group so that it can obtain official recognition from the university. That is, the university will not recognize new student groups that do not have a certain number of members.
As soon as a sufficient number of students have come forward, a meeting will be organized and work will begin on drafting the group's charter (another requirement of the university), electing officers, etc.
A Facebook page has been started to spread the word, and a closed group has been created for interested students.
Additional details will be provided when available. In the meantime, if you know anyone who might be interested, please let them know.
