The Greenville event is part of a busy fall roster of on-the-road gatherings planned by the Samford Office of Alumni Programs and Annual Giving.

The Bulldogs’ first game of the 2014 season drew several hundred Samford fans to a tailgate prior to the Texas Christian University game in Fort Worth, Texas, in late August. A tailgate is also planned at the Samford vs. Auburn University game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Alabama, on Saturday, Nov. 22.

Upcoming non-sports events are planned for Samford alumni in Atlanta, Georgia, Nashville, Tennessee, and elsewhere. Details are available here.
