April 27, 2020
Bulldog Days Update:
Samford University’s Bulldog Days 2020 will be fully virtual. We regret that we will not be together on campus as planned, but we are committed to delivering the very best experience for you and your family in a way that prioritizes the health and wellbeing of every member of our Samford community—especially you, the Class of 2024! We are working through plans to provide as much content as possible in a virtual environment.
Currently, we plan to keep the established Bulldog Days dates of June 1-2, 8-9, 15-16 and 18-19. We will be moving the fifth session to June 22-23. We plan to virtually continue our Transfer sessions as listed. During virtual Bulldog Days we are committed to making academic advising for fall classes as seamless as possible by providing personalized opportunities for advising. In order to provide a highly effective and personal advising experience for class registration, we may need to extend each session by a half day. The final Bulldog Days schedule will be released the week of May 4.
We are excited to welcome you to the Bulldog family and we look forward to virtual Bulldog Days this summer!
