3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The quality of the course are good. All my classes have been pretty dry and uninteresting but they were just general education classes. I had a mishap with a professor who gave me an F on my paper that I did not deserve. Also , the teachers grade the papers but with no explanation of why the gave that grade. I love the class sizes and the variety of classes offered seems pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are several internships and job openings that Samford offers. I also think the alumni network is great. We are receiving more money to work on our campus. I think the students who work calling alumni are doing a great job too.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I like that we have a gate to get into our campus. Personally it makes me feel safe. I think that if we have our i.d on us we should have more privileges. Our i.d's should provide some sort of further security for us students.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life but my friends who are have had great experiences. All the Greeks are super kind to the non-Greeks and it is not weird if you are not Greek

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I attended the football games and those were really fun. All our athletes are really good and our teams are too. Since each frat and sorority get paired with a athletic team the games have a pretty high attendance and fan support.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love school so much. I love learning and being immersed in a intellectual environment helps me to stay focused. The overall independence my school has led to have is something I will have with me for the rest of my life. My school is unique because it is so small. Due to that factor, the smallness of the campus really encourages community and communication with teachers. If I had to choose my school again I would choose it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am so glad I chose to go to Samford. The people, teachers, and courses are fabulous.

Campus Housing: Freshman get the best housing by far. Their dorms are in central campus and are super convenient.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It seems great. I personally am not part of it, but those who do participate seem pretty happy about it.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: All facilities are easy to access and clean. There are multiple places to work out so you don't feel crowded either. Football is the most popular sport, but baseball is pretty popular too.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everyone is super nice and the teachers are respectful and helpful.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe at Samford. Freshman year I had money stolen from me but since then I have not had a problem. It was believed that a janitor at Samford stole the money because I left my wallet in the Llibrary when it closed and it was found the next morning near the janitor closet.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Samford allows students a wide range in internship prospects and the alumni network is always willing to help.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing isn't that great but I enjoyed living on campus because of the community it brought me.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I have enjoyed Greek Life. Greek Life has allowed me to come outside my comfort zone and make lasting friendships.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic department isn't widely known around campus unless you are an athlete.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Samford. I have attended Samford for 4 years and am now in pharmacy school at McWhorter School of Pharmacy. The professors at Samford have challenged and encouraged me over the past 4 years and I am confident they will continue to do so the next 2 years.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Samford is know for having this thing called "The Samford Bubble," essentially meaning that Samford's campus tends to be incredibly safe and secure. This also means that the campus (read: student body) can be blind to campus crime that takes place, such as sexual assault. There are almost never reportings of sexual assault, but it still exists on campus and many people have a blissful ignorance of that fact.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have been satisfied with the quality of education Samford has provided over my first two years of undergrad, however, I constantly feel my particular major is not staffed as well as it could be. Occasionally, some classes seem aimless or the curriculum is rearranged during a four-year period, creating some annoyance with the faculty. Some classes are only offered at 8 in the morning and almost none of my major requirements are available for enrollment during the summer. The ministry opportunities are fantastic and diverse, so there is a place where just about everyone can find their best fit community in order to create the home-away-from-home atmosphere Samford is known for.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you're looking for parties, Samford Greek life is not for you. Samfords Greek life is a great example of what Greek life was and is meant to be. Greek life often times gets a bad rap because of chapters at large state schools, but it is truly one of the best aspects of Samford

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Samford is a university where what happens to you really is up to you. Everything is what you make it. This sounds very cliché but if you choose not to get involved you will hate Samford. Getting involved is the best possible thing to do and getting to meet new people is what makes this school so great.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe & healthy-ish

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers are very knowledgeable about their subjects and with no TAsthe professor really knows the course and their students.

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.
