FreshMIN Retreat

What better way than spending 24 hours together—playing, praying, eating, exploring, laughing, lounging, singing and maybe sleeping. The annual FreshMIN retreat is designed to connect new Samford students with upperclassmen, introduce them to the UM staff and help set the stage for an exciting first semester at Samford University.
