Since Samford’s first commencement in 1847, the university community has joined for a service of worship, prayer and reflection. To continue this tradition, the Class of 2010 and the university faculty will participate in a Prayer Breakfast on Friday, May 14 at 7:15 a.m. in the Cafeteria of Ralph W. Beeson University Center. This private event will allow members of the Samford community to enjoy a special breakfast buffet together and share memories and stories of their shared time at the university.
Candidates for graduation and faculty are encouraged to register in advance.
