A few days after commencement weekend I received a letter from the father of two Samford graduates. One of the students graduated this May. Pleased with the experiences of his students, he chose—through the lens of a parent—to provide five answers to the question, “Why Samford?” Here they are:
- So many classes are taught by full professors.
- Tremendous opportunities for international studies.
- “No co-ed dorms.”
- The requirement of a senior thesis.
- “Most importantly, Samford has maintained a biblical world view in an intellectually rigorous environment.”
This dad also took the time to highlight a few of the people who contributed to the success of his Samford graduates: Larry Davenport, Dave and Robin Johnson, and Julie Steward.
The world is better, according to this thoughtful father, because of at least five reasons, all of them found at Samford.
