Samford University alumni will have ample opportunities to reunite with friends and classmates during 2013 Homecoming weekend November 15 and 16.
From the popular all-alumni banquet to affinity-group tailgate reunions on the quad and formal events off-campus, there will be many ways to connect. And that doesn't include the happy serendipity of running into a long-lost pal along the Homecoming parade route.
