Last Friday, the laptop computer for one of our students was stolen.  Megan Mileski, a faculty member in our Ida Moffett School of Nursing and an advisor to Chi Omega, wrote to me to say that, quickly and without fanfare, through a bundle of small contributions from the young ladies, the members purchased a new laptop for the student and presented it to her last night.  “I have never felt so humbled or overwhelmed with gratitude in my entire life,” wrote the student in an Instagram posting last night, with an accompanying photograph, holding her new MacBook Pro.    

The world is better because spontaneous kindness is routine at Samford.
