Alumni, Parent Events Set in Seven Cities During April
Posted by Philip Poole on 2012-04-04
The "Samford in Your City" spring tour continues with events scheduled in seven more locations during April.
The gatherings provide opportunities for alumni and parents to "reconnect with old friends, make new friends and help your alma mater," according to David B. Goodwin, Samford's director of alumni and parent programs.
University representatives will be on hand to host to each event and to provide updates about campus happenings, Goodwin said.
