Eleven students are in residence at Samford’s Daniel House this semester, along with faculty members Kathy Flowers and Bill Service. As I type this message, Jeanna and I (and John Knapp of our Mann Center for Ethics and Leadership) are sitting with our students and faculty in the Old Common Room at Balliol College, Oxford University, discussing British literature, the enduring influence of Oxford, and comparisons of the British and American systems of higher education.

The world is better because of Samford’s commitment to meaningful educational experiences beyond the borders of the campus.
