It is an ordinary Monday morning in February, a bit dreary in Birmingham due to the rain that we’ll be receiving throughout the day.  But extraordinary things are about to happen at Samford.  Faculty and students are preparing for classes and, throughout the day, there will be bursts of understanding, laughs about shared experiences, and the satisfaction that comes when we know that we are where we are supposed to be, doing what we are supposed to do.

 The world is better because extraordinary things happen at Samford, even on ordinary days.
