AHA!’s first term has been, in short, absolutely amazing.
Facebook members: 19 -> 225 (as of 5/31/09)
Fundraised monies: $225
Events: 7 meetings, Bake Sale, National Day of Reason celebration, film showing, group lecture with Kenneth R. Miller
Press: Daily Insurgent, Oregon Daily Emerald, Friendly Atheist blog, CFI twitter, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship (UO chapter) newsletter
Attendance: Our first two meetings had over 100 attendees. Average meeting attendance is between 30 and 50. Our film showing of “Jesus Camp” was well-attended, with about 70-80 attendees in all.
ASUO recognition status: Under review, due to 6-month existence rule. We should become officially recognized during the summer or at the very beginning of the fall term.
Countless members of AHA! have given their time, money, and effort into making this new organization a huge success. From organizing a spur-of-the-moment bake sale and advertising the group on busy school days to organizing social gatherings and bringing treats to every meeting, we are so indebted to our AHA! members and allies! Thank you for a phenomenal first term!!!
