The Samford Parents Association’s mission is to support and encourage the university, our students and Samford families in very intentional ways. Made up of parents and family members dedicated to seeing our sons and daughters thrive at Samford University, the association is one of the strongest, most vital partnerships Samford has. Your involvement supports the university in many ways, but none as important as contributing to your student’s success. Students whose parents are informed and involved tend to have a higher degree of academic and social success. The association informs by providing resources parents and family members find invaluable in advising their students in the college experience—resources such as the Samford parent portal. The association helps fund Family Weekend and local events for parents and looks for ways to encourage our students throughout the year.

We hope you will register and find your place within the Samford Parents Association—identifying the type of membership and involvement best suited for your household. Our sons and daughters and the many students who will come long after them will benefit from our combined efforts.
