One evening last week, as we welcomed guests for dinner, Elizabeth Poulos and Juliette Stanley were our student hosts.  They are each seniors and their academic interests have spanned the breadth of our undergraduate programs.  Their faithful testimonies were full of illustrations of the ways in which their experiences at Samford have prepared them for graduate school and for life.  That evening, listening to them, I was reminded again of my gratitude for our students and for Samford employees—faculty and staff—who contribute so much to their success.

The world is better because of Juliette Stanley, Elizabeth Poulos and all of our Samford Ambassadors.
