    One thing I absolutely love about Samford is the atmosphere. Everyone there is very friendly and the faculty and staff actually care about you and your academic achievement. It has small classes and many different opportunities for students involved in the School of the Arts.

    Samford University is a dream school. The environment is breathtakingly encouraging and supportive while maintaining beauty and sophistication. The surrounding area of Birmingham is wonderful for hanging out and getting away for a while. Overall, incredibly impressed with the campus and the people on it.

    Samford has an excellent reputation all around the state. They offer very good internship and job opportunities. The class sizes are small, so you really get to know your teachers.

    Samford is a great university! It's location, academics, and extracurricular are some of the best in the Southeast. Plus, there is a real sense of community at Samford that is hard to find elsewhere.

    Not worth the money. Not good for people who consider themselves to be mature or independent in any way. Focus of the school is not academics.

    Small, private, baptist college. Not very progressive. Supposedly dry campus, but there is still drinking and some drugs.
