There are probably ample resources available to you in your school library to "improve your game." At a Lutheran college, if it is any good, they will still have the works of at least a few humanist philosophers (I started with Russell, but YMMV). Your local UU church, if you have one, will have other resources, potentially including a humanists discussion group. Worth checking out, if it still exists. Then there is the internet. In the early 90s, Usenet had a couple of good groups, including soc.atheism and talk.philosophy.humanism, but I've not been on Usenet since 1996 so I can't vouch for the current quality.
Then of course, there is the school of hard knocks. :) Arguably the best way to learn, but hell on the self-esteem until you "get game." ;)
