Samford University



President Andrew WestmorelandThere are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford.  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. Their stories are incredible.

Each Monday, I share one of their stories to illustrate how our people impact the world. If you would like to receive the story by e-mail, write to me at  Simply say, "add me to the Monday message list."
