Samford University’s Offices of Alumni and Parent Programs continue a busy fall schedule with events in Tennessee, Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama, in addition to the annual Homecoming weekend Oct. 31-Nov. 1. 

For the remainder of the fall we have a variety of alumni events scheduled that should appeal to a wide range Samford alumni and parents,” said Lauren McCaghren, senior director of alumni programs. “Our Nashville and Atlanta alumni chapters are hosting events, and there are a number of school-specific networking opportunities as well.  We hope Samford alumni will take advantage of as many of these opportunities as possible, and join us on campus for our biggest event all year - Homecoming!”
