our graduates are profoundly grateful for the ways their lives were shaped at Samford—and each one of us, regardless of our title or tasks, is responsible for fulfilling the precious mission of this university. From the two 99-year-old grads who attended the Golden Bulldog reunion to alums who returned from the Class of 2019, the connections are vibrant and eternal.
The world is better because of the ways Samford people live out the Samford mission.
