Hello secular students! This Thursday, October 21th at 7pm we will be hosting a special guest: Rob Sherman. Rob Sherman has been a stalwart against religious incursions into government in the state of Illinois for more than 20 years. Rob Sherman has fought against Illinois' mandatory "Moment of Silence" in public schools, as well as a 10-story Christian cross in Southern Illinois. Come hear him speak about his experiences and the vital importance of church state separation. Afterward, we will be heading over to Murphy's, as usual.
As always, we'll be in Mechanical Engineering Building room 253.
