Last week I visited briefly with one of those families and listened as they related their observations. I have no idea if the prospect will choose Samford, but if she does, I suspect it will be largely because of the interaction that she had with members of our faculty members in the Howard College of Arts and Sciences. Sitting in on a couple of classes and talking with faculty members later, she left with a deep appreciation for the attention afforded our students.
The world is better because of the engagement of our faculty in the development of our students—and our prospective students.
