Having produced the Patten Performances series at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga for six years now, Bob Boyer is confident he has the series back on track.

"At-risk" students are the kids most likely (not) to succeed. They are the first person in their family to attend university. They typically come from low-income single parent homes and, as if that wasn't enough, they often suffer from a physical, emotional, or intellectual disability. The transition from high school to college is tough for any 18 year-old, but for these young men and women the obstacles are often insurmountable. Lucky--very, very lucky--are those who manage to secure a place in Shirl Gholston's Student Support Services.
Researchers at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga have completed an extensive study of more than 1,000 non-believers nationwide, and the researchers have identified six basic types of atheists. Dr. Christopher Silver and Thomas J. Coleman led the project, and their study showed that 14% of atheists are angry, confrontational “anti-theists.” However, 12% of atheists are “ritual atheists” who attend religious services even though they don’t believe in the theology. In this feature segment, we find out why some atheists choose church.
