For the ninth consecutive year, we posted a record-breaking enrollment, with 5,509 students.  Of that number, 3,373 are undergraduates and 2,136 are enrolled in our graduate and professional programs.  The students come to us from 45 states and 29 other countries.  May we assist each one of them in “their development of intellect, creativity, faith, and personhood.”

The world is better because of the engaged minds and souls of Samford students.
