As a simple and recent example, I received a message last week from a visitor to the campus (the father of a prospective student), including these sentences: 

I stopped at another point and asked a student about the education building.  He didn’t just tell me where it was – he insisted on walking me through it, and then showed me the renovations in the student building, as well as pointing out the dorms where my daughter would most likely be.  

Kindness is not accidental.  Thanks to the anonymous student who gave so generously of his time to a person he didn’t know.

The world is better because of the kindness of so many people affiliated with Samford.
