As the members of our faculty and staff work with families to help them through this decision-making process, I am privileged to receive occasional messages from prospective students and parents. I was struck by one line in a message from a dad last week. He said, “There are a few times in life when you know something is right, and this was one of those times.” I’m well aware that it takes many days of visits, discussions and prayer for a family to get to the point of knowing that a college choice is “right.” I’m grateful to the men and women throughout Samford that support this life-changing process.
The world is better because Samford people invest themselves in the important decisions of the families we serve.
