One of the main goals of the Community is to provide stability for student groups. In this way we act as an umbrella, giving advice and a place for students to form a larger community.
We currently have no active student clubs. In the past, the student clubs below were established and maintained for a number of years by Rutgers undergraduates. Although the students who ran these clubs have graduated and left Rutgers, we hope to see new clubs arise as we go forward. Any students who are interested in forming and being officers in a new club should contact us. We will be delighted to help you get going.
RU Secular Humanists
RUSH was founded by students in order to provide an environment for non-theists to discuss important issues, to give back to the wider Rutgers and New Jersey community through service projects, and to generate a more positive and active public image of non-theists.
Atheist Student Alliance
The ASA was a member of the Secular Student Alliance and provided a presence for students that share a common identity in atheism. The focus of the ASA, like that of RUSH, was on building a community and maintaining an environment for like-minded students to get together.
To many, Pastafarians may not seem to fit in with the Humanist Community, as they worship a particularly saucy Spaghetti Deity. If you are not familiar with the religion you should check out their national website, which includes their crowd-sourced scriptures. Club meetings focused on issues of separation of church and state and having fun – which usually involved grog, puns, pasta and dressing up as pirates.
