Registration opens April 1 for Samford University's orientation for first-time students.

Bulldog Days is Samford's new student orientation program for incoming students and their families. More than that, it is an opportunity for students to meet their classmates, register for classes, spend the night in a residence hall and begin their transition into the Samford family. 


"Bulldog Days is as much of a transformative experience as it is a transitional one," said David Presley, assistant director of recruitment and orientation. "It's more than students building a class schedule and meeting their future classmates. Our orientation staff believes in creating the first two days of the best four years of our students' lives." 

Registration for Bulldog Days opens on April 1 and is required for all new students. Students enrolled for summer and fall semesters will be able to register through their application status Page.
