Samford University will hold its third Admission Preview Day of the fall Saturday, Nov. 21.  A total of 300 high school students and their families have registered, meaning Samford expects about 900 people for the program.

Registration has closed due to capacity, but students still can be placed on a wait-list to attend. Samford also offers daily visits that may be scheduled.

Preview Day offers prospective students the opportunity to tour the Samford campus, meet current students, visit with faculty and learn about Samford’s scholarship and financial aid programs.  Check-in is from 8 a.m. until 8:30 a.m. in Wright Center.

Following Preview Day activities, prospective students and their families can attend a tailgate meal on campus prior to the Samford-Elon football game at 2 p.m. in Seibert Stadium.
