Another student group…in a challenging place

I hear about freethought student groups popping up on college campuses everywhere — and that includes southern campuses, where the stereotypes are the fiercest. I haven't been hearing much out of the strange state of Utah, though, until now: students planning their school year in Logan, Utah really ought to look up the Utah State University Secular Humanists, Athiests, and Free Thinkers. They're working a tough room. If you want to see a part of our country where religion really is all-pervasive, visit Utah (of course, you can also visit Utah for the desert and the geology and avoid almost all the Mormonism, too).
