The Secular Alliance at Indiana University logo

Why join a secular student group?

We welcome and desire members from all beliefs and backgrounds, and we're definitely not a group just for nonbelievers. We think it's incredibly important to consider the views of others in an attempt to understand one another. We know that it is easy to jump to conclusions, rather than see past shallow differences to our common humanity, so it's up to us to cultivate a sense of patience and respect.

We want members who are committed participants, who seeks to live a life marked by intellectual growth, emotional resilience, compassionate action, and wonder.

So, why join our group? If you're the kind of person who wants to make the world a better place, we want to meet you. And if you're a person who wants to spread goodness, we have the group for you.

How do we start?

College is just one stop on the road of life, and it's a time of great possibilities—so why not make the most of your time here? First, we need to intentionally build a supportive community. We want to help you strengthen your emotional and intellectual resiliency with the help of others for a lifetime of benefits. That's why we created our Waypoint groups.

Our Waypoint groups are opportunities to examine and question ideas from all of human culture, to make friends and connect as a group in a safe space free of criticism, and to build ourselves and our community up. These groups are intentional gatherings of students who commit themselves to work together to make the world a better place.
