It seems like yesterday that the Class of 2015 made Samford University their home. As they walked the graduation stage, entering a new phase of life, we took time to reflect on their time here. What was their experience? What will they remember?
Samford University awarded more than 1,000 degrees during commencement activities in May. Beeson Divinity School held its commencement and service of consecration in Hodges Chapel. All other programs were held in the Wright Center.
Samford is a leading Christian university offering undergraduate programs grounded in the liberal arts with an array of nationally recognized graduate and professional schools. Founded in 1841, Samford is the 87th-oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. The Wall Street Journal ranks Samford 1st nationally for student engagement and U.S. News & World Report ranks Samford 66th in the nation for best undergraduate teaching and 104th nationally for best value. Samford enrolls 5,683 students from 47 states and 19 countries in its 10 academic schools: arts, arts and sciences, business, divinity, education, health professions, law, nursing, pharmacy and public health. Samford fields 17 athletic teams that compete in the tradition-rich Southern Conference, and ranks 3rd nationally for its Graduation Success Rate among all NCAA Division I schools.
