Hi everyone! My name is Jacob Hopkins, and I’m from Tupelo, Mississippi (home to the birth of Elvis Presley and Tupelo Honey). I’m a senior at Samford, which is such a weird sentence, I guess time really does fly by when you’re having fun! Since my first visit to Samford, this university has easily become my favorite place on earth. I love hanging out with friends, watching movies, and going on long car rides around Birmingham. Some places you can find on Samford’s campus are the library, Brock School of Business, and the UC (my personal favorite). Choosing Samford has been the best decision of my life! I’ve been able to grow academically, socially, and spiritually. I can’t wait to meet all of y’all and see how Samford will impact your life!
