Founded in 1841, Samford University is a 4-year Christian university in the greater Birmingham area affiliated with the Alabama Baptist Convention. Samford is home to 10 colleges conferring numerous undergraduate degrees and all classes are focused on the university’s Christian mission. Once every year, almost 1000 students band together to put on a musical production called Step Sing with all proceeds going to charity. All first year students are invited to begin their Samford careers with the Freshman Retreat featuring outdoor activities and meetings with upperclassmen mentors.
samford is a great place to learn in a christian environment. there is a great student to faculty ratio, giving students plenty of opportunity to seek individual help. the faculty are warm and inviting, and always willing to help students improve and reach their goals.
