I received this message last week, with the headline, "Great Day, Even for a Visitor" . . .
"Saturday, November 7, 2009 was my first visit to Samford University. I was hoping that my Georgia Southern Eagles would beat your Bulldogs but it was obvious to me that the better team won. Despite my disappointment, I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I enjoyed my time on your beautiful campus. I have been to almost every Southern Conference campus and I can tell you that none have been as impressive as Samford’s. Not only do you have a beautiful campus, the thing that I will remember the most is how friendly everyone associated with Samford was to my son and me. I could sense in my spirit that this was indeed a Christian campus. Not Christian in name only but more importantly Christian as expressed through your people. I commend you and all of the fine Samford folks and thank you for a wonderful experience, even for a visitor of an opposing and defeated foe."
The world is better because of the generous spirit of our people.
