Cold? I have friends who sweat profusely in 60 degree weather. They would probably like it there. Beyond that, I can't think of much to recommend it.

I kind of prefer the east coast or the FAR northern Midwest, until you get out to about Illinois or Wisconsin. Far more liberal, on average, once you get north of South Carolina, which is kind of an embarrassing intellectual-wasteland.

Hmmmmmm, I dunno.  What are the pros of North Dakota?

Ah, yeah, I guess that cluster of small towns has sufficient population density to support meetup.com groups, huh?  Cool.  Well, at least that's a small piece of the year during which you can hang out with rational people.

I can appreciate the issue with Arkansas.  I love mountains and nature, but even more, I love the convenience, liberalism, and greater education levels of more urban areas.  Whatchagonnado?

How are you doing Alisha?
Hahaha, it all kind of runs together, I've been switching back and forth from full time to half time and have also taken some time off. I am pretty sure I am going to be a junior this coming semester (beginning in February, I'm online via APUS). I am definitely the artistic type- approaching science is still a bit intimidating to me, but I am so moved by it that I feel I would be cheating myself if I did not pursue. What do you intend to do with your degree? Hope your week is going well. (=

I can sort of see that there wouldn't be much.  I pulled it up on Google Maps, and ... yeah, you've got maybe a square mile of town stuck on the side of the college.  That doesn't make for enough population to turn it into a real college town.  That might not be a large enough university to support an SSA branch, either.  I dunno.  I've never actually been to Arkansas.  I've traveled all over the eastern half of the US, but mostly up in the north, as you get further west.

I think Little Rock probably has a reasonably active atheism group, but you're a bit far out to make their events.  Looks like about an hour and a half drive.  You've got to be in a decent-sized city to get a real group together.

In North Carolina, there are only two significant groups.  The Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill) metro area has several decent-sized groups, and then the Charlotte area has a good group.  The Triad (Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point) doesn't have an active group, and none of the other smaller cities have much activity.  In the smaller cities, it's difficult to find enough active people, since the populations are flung out so far into the outskirts.

Hi there! (= I am also in college and looking for more atheist friends. I am, however, much farther North. And an environmental studies major. Hahah. Theater was always an interest of mine. Hope you are enjoying your studies.

My pleasure!! =)  Have a great weekend!

Hmm, no local branch of the SSA or anything?  I know what you mean about how hard it is to find people in southern areas.  Fortunately, North Carolina isn't really The South anymore, as long as you stay in a civilized, urban area.  We've had so many transplants over the last 10 or 15 years.  For that matter, I'm originally from the Chicago area, myself.
