The Tradition of Step Sing

Step Sing began as a sing-along on the steps of Renfroe Hall at the Howard College East Lake Campus in 1951. It was held once a semester and soon became a competition. In 1957, Howard College moved to its present location on Lakeshore Drive, bringing with it the tradition of Step Sing. In 1976, Step Sing moved to its current home in the Samford University Wright Center.

Under the direction of the Division of Student Affairs and the Office of Student Activities and Events, Step Sing is organized by students, including musical arrangement, choreography and costume design. Step Sing has become an educational activity in which students participate through leadership development, organizational administration, and time management. Students perform three days to sold-out audiences. It continues to be one of Samford's most popular traditions, and is a popular event not only among students, but also prospective students, employees, alumni, and the Birmingham community.

Step Sing Endowed Scholarship

In celebration of the program’s 70th anniversary, we established the Step Sing Endowed Scholarship! Through the years, students at Samford University have worked tirelessly to keep this tradition thriving, and Step Sing is thrilled to give back to these students and their academic pursuits. All Step Sing participants with at least one undergraduate semester remaining are eligible to receive funds from the Step Sing Endowed Scholarship. 

Your gifts will go directly to the continued education of students at Samford University. We would be honored to have you join us in this endeavor.
