Samford University students will return to campus this weekend in anticipation of spring semester classes set to begin Monday (Jan. 29). About 4,234 students are expected.

Samford provost and executive vice president Dr. Brad Creed will speak at the semester's opening convocation Tuesday at 10 a.m. in Wright Center. His topic will be "How to Refute a Sneer."

Returning students will find that while away on mid-year break finishing touches were put on an indoor/outdoor tennis complex, new on-campus roadwork was completed, and work was begun on a 600-space parking deck.
