As I was leaving Davis Library one afternoon last week, a young lady (a freshman) stopped me to say how much she has enjoyed this semester at Samford.  We exchanged comments for a couple of minutes, then I asked, “So, where are you headed?”  She explained to me that she was on her way to the office of one of her faculty members to receive a “progress report,” so that she could best know how to prepare for the final weeks of the semester.  “I can’t imagine having this level of interaction with faculty anywhere else,” she said.  Because we were in the library, I had to resist the temptation to shout an enthusiastic reply. 

The world is better because Samford people go the extra mile.
