Among the many great elements of Susan Doyle’s planning for Family Weekend was her inclusion of classes for parents, taught on Friday afternoon by several members of our faculty. Topics ranged from “the reliability of eyewitness testimony” to “how Plato can save your life,” with “betterocracy” thrown in for good measure. The brief sessions highlighted for parents the ways in which our faculty members regularly engage students in courses across all disciplines. I heard many positive remarks about the classes on Friday and Saturday, usually with this parting comment: “we wish that we were enrolled at Samford!”
The world is better because of the Samford faculty...and because of the support of Samford parents for the educational experiences of their students.
