Welcome to the virtual commencement ceremony for Samford University’s Brock School of Business
Saturday, August 15, 2020 at 12:30 p.m.
Congratulations! You will always hold a special place in our hearts for your persistence in the face of challenges that no other graduating class has ever faced.
Since March you have moved to fully online classes, completed degree requirements, searched for jobs in a challenging job market, dealt with illness and uncertainty and countless other hurdles to get to today…and even today was not what we had hoped for and planned. But, through all of this, you have persisted with the tenacity of a Bulldog – a Samford Bulldog – and on behalf of the faculty and staff of the Brock School of Business, we could not be prouder of you.

Today, we honor 150 new graduates who are receiving their hard-earned undergraduate business degrees. We also recognize 69 new graduates of our Master of Business Administration and Master of Accountancy graduate programs, 25 of which completed joint degrees. Welcome to the Brock School of Business alumni family!
Each world you experience will create one or more opportunities that could mold your careers, families and who you are forever.
These opportunities are gold to those who choose to approach the next chapter of your life with a plan to conquer and succeed with a positive state of mind. I encourage you to view this new world through a lens that is one made up of opportunities rather than hurdles. Act on your thoughts and ideas rather than just simply talk about them. Put yourself out there. Fail, get up, do not whine, give more the next time. Together we can change the world.
