My name is Grace Carland and I’m from Orlando, Florida. Samford is easily my favorite place and has quickly become my home away from home- I can’t wait to share this place with each of you! The community and people here are truly like no other and I could not imagine going through this college season anywhere else. At Samford, you are surrounded by a team of people who are constantly challenging and encouraging you and I can’t wait to see how each of you impact and add to this place. Besides Samford I love being with family and friends, my dog, Opal, going on drives, strong coffee, eating popcorn (or just snacks in general), and of course, Chick-fil-A ice (it’s the best thing in the whole world!). Seriously cannot wait to meet each of you and am counting down the days until we get to welcome y’all to campus!
