Greek Life: Greek life is an increasingly prominent part of campus life. It seems that most men and women are in a fraternity or sorority.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a whole, most students don't pay a great deal of attention to the sports themselves. Sporting events are more social than supportive for the teams.

Administration: Visitation hours are a bit of a headache. If you live in Beeson though, you can get around a lot of rules if you're careful.

Campus Food: The cafeteria gets very monotonous after a while, and it can be a bit difficult to find quality vegetarian protein options without just eating peanut butter or hummus all the time.

Campus Housing: Overall, campus housing is alright. It's very convenient to live on campus because you can wake up ten minutes before class and still make it on time if you want to. But at the same time, being on campus so much can be a bit stressful in terms of being in the same place all the time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Samford can be a wonderful experience for students. While the first semester can be extremely difficult, with students being away from their families and friends for the first time, things become easier with perseverance. Students first need to get out of their comfort zones and invest in the hilarious, wonderful people who make up the Samford population.

That being said, the people make the experience worthwhile, and there are always opportunities to meet new people, whether it's free concerts on the quad, chilling next to the fountain in Ben Brown Plaza, renting the Vail movie room for "Glee" nights, Step Sing, or worshiping at RUF (Reformed University Fellowship). These are just some of the many things students can experience at Samford. Plus, the caring professors instill in students not only knowledge, but wisdom, preparing men and women for the future every time they step into the classroom. The liberal arts aspect prompts many to draw endless comparisons and similarities between different classes, teaching students to see the "big picture." In addition, the various convo speakers shed new light on issues that matter, making students take on new points of view about things rarely given a second thought.
