There are many great institutions of higher education, but there is only one Samford University. 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. Each Monday, I share one of their incredible stories to illustrate how our people impact the world.

If you are considering a trip to Kigali, Rwanda, a recent article in The New York Times offered “five places to go.”

Number two on the list is The Women’s Bakery.  If you drop by the bakery, you might encounter Rachel Carroll, a Samford graduate, the Program Manager.  Here’s the link from The New York Times, just to whet your appetite: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/18/travel/five-places-to-go-in-kigali.html.  Samford graduates are everywhere.

The world is better because of Rachel Carroll and the work done each day in The Women’s Bakery.
