Student Affairs & Enrollment Management
The goal of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management is to recruit and retain student leaders; meet the social, physical, financial and spiritual needs of those students; and assist them in developing unique talents, abilities, and personal goals for a life of world-changing impact.
Samford University is the premier private Christian university in the South and the top-ranked university in Alabama, and the Office of Admission is where prospective student contact with Samford begins. This office is responsible for admission processing, campus visits and preview events, merit scholarships, orientations, and recruitment.
Campus Life is committed to developing each individual student's emotional, intellectual, physical, social, and spiritual well-being by providing opportunities that maximize student potential and broaden understanding of one's place in a global society, while nurturing a sense of belonging for all students in a Christian campus community. Residential Life has charge of housing, helping and nurturing more than 2,200 students living in 28 residence halls.
Parents and family members are a very important aspect of the Samford family. The Office of Parent Programs coordinates Family Weekend and the Parents Association, and serves as a resource for parents.
