It seems like yesterday that the Class of 2017 made Samford University their home. As they walk the graduation stage, entering a new phase of life, we take time to reflect on their time here. What was their experience? What will they remember?

Samford University will graduate approximately 1,237 students during seven commencement programs. All ceremonies may be viewed via live stream.
