Improved Alumni Page Offers Timely Information, Networking

"... we want and really need our alumni to join us, everywhere we go..."

Updated Alumni SiteDavid Goodwin, Director of Samford's Alumni & Parents Programs, has worked with University Relations staff to launch an improved Alumni webpage (follow link below).  He said the need to provide alumni with timely information is the main reason for the improvements. "I hope to have relevant information about activities and programs always easily available on the alumni page,” Goodwin said.

As important as timeliness of content is, Goodwin added, the site also needed an updated look. "We want the presentation to meet the expectations of Alumni," he said. "I think we have created a page that is attractive, bright and warm.”
 
As the university adds new features to the alumni page in coming days and weeks, Goodwin said he hopes it will become a place where friends can catch up with each other and make plans to meet at Samford events. He noted that the Young Alumni section of the revamped site links to the popular Facebook social networking site. " We have a Young Alumni group through Facebook with more than 300 members," Goodwin said.

"Overall," Goodwin said, "we want and really need our alumni to join us everywhere we go."
