Who Are We?
The Religious Studies Student Association (RSSA) is open to all majors and minors in the department, as well as any University of Alabama student who is interested in planning and participating in events outside the REL classroom. RSSA promotes students’ interests in the history, development, and application of religious studies, providing them with an opportunity to achieve and develop their intellectual interests.
What’s Goin’ on in the RSSA?
The RSSA is the student association associated with the Department of Religious Studies. The students work to organize different events for majors and minors in the department, (such as Get On Board Day…). The students, along with a few members of the faculty, frequently go out for dinner, watch movies, go on excursions, etc.
Under the direction of Prof. Richard Newton, the RSSA faculty advisor, the officers are gearing up for the new year with several exciting events in the works!
We’re always happy to have new folks join our company, so be sure to stay tuned in on Facebook and Twitter for information on RSSA events (e.g., times, locations, updates, etc.), and don’t forget to R.S.V.P. (You get brownie points if you do).
Also, feel free to post any ideas or opinions you may have! After all, the RSSA wouldn’t be what it is without all of the majors/minors, so please let us know of any ideas you may have for future events — such as an annual Manly Cup event at which the faculty aren’t so good. It’s a great time to get involved with the RSSA!
