Should I put down an atheist club on my resume?

Postby TheDude559 » Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:13 pm

I started a Secular Student Alliance on my campus and I was heavily involved with planning events, recruiting professors to give talks, discussions, etc.

Should I put this down on my resume or will law schools look down on this?

Unless you're applying to a religious school like Notre Dame or BYU it shouldn't adversely affect you. Even then, unless the school puts a premium on bringing in people who are a part of its faith, I doubt it would matter.

I wouldn't do it. It could risk making you look like an asshole.

I think its fine, but I would avoid putting it on resume when you're looking for jobs.

The atheist club? What do you do, get around and talk about what you don't believe?

The Secular Student Alliance is misinformed and delusional.

The Allied Athiest Allegiance is the only true athiesm. We will smash all others like a clam on our collective tummies

In all seriousness though, I doubt it will even fet looked at if its placed after your work experience section

I'd add Pepperdine and BC to that list as well. Villanova, too. A few others (anything with St. in its name).
