Due to the threat of extreme weather for our immediate area, Samford will close at 2:00 pm today (this means classes and university offices).   Because curricular needs vary across programs, instructors will provide course specific make-up information to students enrolled in their courses.   For students living on campus, Residence Life will continue to provide resident-specific emails to provide safety and services information. 

For those who must remain on campus, we are continually monitoring information from the National Weather Service and assessing local conditions.   Stay close to sources of weather information via your tv, radio, computer, or smartphone, as conditions can change rapidly.   We expect a variety of watches and warnings to be issued as the evening continues.  We will utilize our RAVE system in the event that the entire campus is ordered to take action due to the threat of tornadic activity in our immediate vicinity.   To sign up for RAVE, go to: .
