Join us for Samford Family Weekend 2004 October 1-3!

Family Weekend 2004 is the perfect opportunity to escape your routine for a few days and spend time with your student while seeing just what Samford life is all about.

This annual event, sponsored by the Student Government Association's Student Activities Council, will be packed with activities, including a student talent showcase, barbecue dinner, pep rally, football game, worship service, family golf tournament and more.

The Samford Parents Association annual meeting will be at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 2. The annual meeting is an opportunity for parents to learn about association activities on campus and in select cities/regions. Samford President Thomas E. Corts will provide an update on Samford, and other parents and students will speak. All parents are members of the association and are encouraged to be involved in association activities.

This will be a busy NASCAR racing weekend in the Birmingham area, so make your hotel reservations soon. Samford has arranged for a limited number of rooms at the Holiday Inn/Homewood and the Hampton Inns in Mountain Brook and Vestavia Hills. As of Aug. 30, all hotels still had rooms available. You must mention that you are attending Samford's Family Weekend to get the special rates, which are considerably lower than the rates being quoted publicly or through national reservation services.
