In addition to the benefits and opportunities provided to all SUAA members, there are also specific resources for young alumni. For those young alumni in Birmingham, Atlanta and Nashville, the Young Alumni Board in each city hosts several events throughout the year. These events are fun and easy ways to build your community as a recent Samford graduate.

For those looking for meaningful volunteer opportunities, inspirational programs and a friendly, caring community, the Samford University Legacy League offers a junior membership (ages 40 and under). With membership starting at just $25 annually, this service organization unites more than 750 members in their commitment to provide life-changing scholarships to students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances. 

Another great way to stay connected to Samford is through the Samford Bulldog Club. This organization, which is committed to supporting Samford’s 360 student-athletes, offers first-class, exclusive game day experiences and unique networking opportunities for its members. With many levels of access and membership, the Bulldog Club provides opportunities for Samford student-athletes to compete with the best and excel in all areas of their Samford career.
