What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
Be willing to try new things while at Samford. Keep an open mind and make your own college experience memorable by maintaining a good attitude in every situation. Invest in your friendships here, but keep in touch with the ones at home, too.
Mary from Maryville, TN
Have a good attitude and be prepared to be shown lots of southern hospitality.
Angela from Childersburg, AL
Save your money! There is so much you will want to do here, so a comfortable cushion would be nice.

Don't worry about Samford being a small school. Although it may be considered as such, it feels bigger than it is because many people from all over the country (and other countries) study here.
Marcos from Hoover, AL
Really get involved your first year, but don't over-commit yourself! If something sparks your interest, try it! By your second semester, you should have a feel for where you want to focus your attention whether it is through SGA or Greek life or UM. Once you find where you fit, put your passion into it and connect with others.
Chelsea from Sand Rock, AL
Sit in on a class, eat in the Caf, and stay overnight. Also schedule a meeting with your advisor.
Anna from Huntsville, AL
Talk to the teachers. Get to know them. They actually care about you and want to see you succeed.
Francois-Oliver from Birmingham, AL
As I am not yet a college student, I would give generic advice and say to study and try hard in class. Show up for class. Do not skip class.
