    From the President

    Andrew Westmoreland
    Dr. Andrew Westmoreland
    There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford University. Here, a dedicated faculty and energetic students join to create a community of learning and faith like no other. The beauty of Samford’s campus is virtually matchless, but it pales in comparison to the quality of our people. From the classrooms and laboratories to the artistic stages and athletic venues, the minds and souls of Samford people make the real difference. Samford people bring the best, they are demanding and compassionate, they know the importance of engaging the world with a faith that calls them to serve. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

    This morning I’m conscious of the fact that we have not one story, but 5,206 stories at Samford.

    This morning I’m conscious of the fact that we have not one story, but 5,206 stories at Samford.  That is our final fall enrollment number:  5,206.  They come to us from 46 states and 32 other countries, each student bringing with them all of the characteristics and influences that have shaped their lives.  Each with a mind, a heart, a soul.  Will we nurture them, as our mission calls us to do, in the “development of intellect, creativity, faith, and personhood”?  The challenge of meeting that standard inspires us each day.

    The world is better because of the presence of 5,206 lives among us this fall at Samford University.
