If you’re a student at the University of Alabama interested in the ideas of Ayn Rand, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re a new fan of her fiction– such as Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, or Anthem– or a die-hard Objectivist, I invite you to join UA’s rational thinkers in discussing Ayn Rand’s ideas about literature, politics, and philosophy by participating in Alabama Students of Objectivism.
Ayn Rand believed in reason, individualism, limited government, and capitalism. And her novels, essays, and other works of nonfiction– which have inspired thousands to stand up for individual rights– are even more relevant in today’s age of unbridled government expansion.
If you want to learn more about Ayn Rand’s influential philosophy of Objectivism, or want the chance to engage in discussion with like-minded students at the University of Alabama, I encourage you to consider getting involved in Alabama Students of Objectivism. Throughout the year, we hope to form discussion groups about Ayn Rand’s major works, as well as hold lecture series on Objectivist ideas with some of the Ayn Rand Institute’s pre-eminent intellectuals.
So don’t hesitate to send an email or message, even if you just want some more information. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
P.S: The national Ayn Rand Institute currently has a program where college students can receive free copies of Atlas Shrugged. Just photocopy your student ID and mail it in– let me know if you want a postcard!
