Monday Mission, 11/23/09

This past Saturday we hosted 800 guests on campus for the largest Preview Day in our history.  Given the fact that a majority of Preview Day attendees enroll as students at Samford, these events are of great importance to the institution.  The prospects and their parents were effusive in their praise for the faculty and staff they met throughout the day--and they saved their greatest superlatives for the Samford students they encountered, especially the members of our Student Recruitment Team.  They represented us very, very well.

The world is better because of the competence and enthusiasm of our students.
