fall alumni events

Samford University alumni will have opportunities to renew friendships, share Samford experiences and network at a series of events this fall, ranging from tailgates on the university quad to an evening at Carnegie Hall. 

Casey Ramey, director of alumni programs, said the events are a great way for alumni throughout the country to meet one another and stay engaged with the Samford community. 

“We look forward to the many opportunities to connect with the wonderful alumni of Samford University, including tailgates, receptions and webinars,” Ramey said. 

All alumni are invited to support Samford football and join the alumni tailgate before every home game. Additionally, the alumni association will host a tailgate at three of Samford’s away games: Chattanooga, Furman and Mississippi State.
