The first piece of advice was “go to class.”  Whether our students are taking their first college course or the first course of their last semester, they’ll begin today.  Syllabi are in order, class schedules are arranged, faculty members are prepared, students (and faculty) are anxious and lives are about to be changed.  Despite reliving this day for decades, I am still awestruck by the opportunities it affords. 

The world is better because of the dedicated, inspired service of the Samford faculty.
