Samford Alumni Clubs help connect and cultivate the Samford Community in cities where a Samford Alumni Chapter is not located. The Samford Alumni Clubs are entirely alumni-driven and foster authentic, meaningful relationships between alumni in a particular city through grassroots efforts including events, university updates and correspondence. Club members can be former undergraduate or graduate students, current or former faculty/staff members or friends of Samford University.

If you are an alum who is eager to connect the Samford Community in your area where a Samford Alumni Chapter does not exist, consider launching a Samford Alumni Club. It’s easy! The only rule is that there must be at least three Samford alumni in your area who are interested in club involvement.
