Samford alumni periodically have met together to renew acquaintances,
share a meal and raise support for their alma mater for at least 137 years.
In January 1866, then-Howard College and Marion, Ala., welcomed Samuel
Sterling Sherman, former college president, home at the close of the Civil
War. By 1870, the alumni association had elected officers and inaugurated
an official annual reunion of alumni that included a banquet in connection
with spring commencement ceremonies.
In 1919, a fall reunion was held for the first time in conjunction with
a Bulldogs football game. The traditions of both a fall homecoming and
a banquet at spring commencement continued through 1992.
This year, Samford renews the tradition of an alumni banquet and invites
alumni and their families to come home for a weekend of reunions, banquets
and football to celebrate Samford’s glorious past and exciting future.
