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.

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. The students, along with a few members of the faculty, frequently go out for dinner, watch movies, go on excursions, etc.

Under the new direction of Prof. Eleanor Finnegan, the new RSSA faculty advisor, the officers (Lexi Poston, Ben Flax, and Jared Powell) are ready to kick-off the new year with several exciting events!

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.!

Also, feel free to post the with 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. It's a great time to get involved with the RSSA!

And of course, a big thank you goes to Prof. Russell McCutcheon, Betty Dickey, and Donna Martin for helping make all of this possible!
