Campus Food: The food is usually cold and dry. But once I find something I like (like grilled chicken, yogurt, and salad) I tend to only eat those things. They try to create new dishes, but they just don't look appetizing so I don't even try it.

Campus Housing: Living on campus puts you so much closer to classes than living off campus. The campus is enclosed, so driving to class every day would be a pain. Why not just walk and get in extra exercise?

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.
