Meet an Alumnus

Mandy Arnette enrolled at Samford with a passion for music and with a goal to attend a graduate program in the health sciences. She sang in the A Cappella Choir for all four years while also completing science coursework, and she is now pursuing the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree.
The Bachelor of Science in Music degree enabled me to grow in my musical ability while also providing me with the education to pursue a career in health care. Being able to pursue these goals and passions together enriched my college experience. In addition to the high quality of the program itself, I would not be obtaining my Master of Science in Occupational Therapy degree without the support of my School of the Arts family.
