The goal of Student Affairs 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.
Rooted in life and teachings of Christ, our mission is to foster meaningful connections and collaborations with the people around us. Loving our neighbor is an essential part of faith formation. Many Samford students, faculty and staff seek to do just this through acts of service, mutual learning and a long-term commitment to our city.
Greek Life at Samford is like no other community. Sororities and fraternities at Samford are purposeful - we serve our community and give to righteous causes because that's what Samford is about. We are faithful - we live out our faith through fellowship and everyday grace. And we are real - we support each other's journeys through college and life.
