Service is something that is very important to Samford University.  The Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders recently partnered with The Bell Center, located in Birmingham, Alabama, to help with their literacy program.

Not only were students able to help these young children, they were also able to gain some valuable hands on experience in their future profession.
