The Samford Parents Association is made up of parents and family members dedicated to seeing our sons and daughters thrive at Samford University. While we all have been deeply involved in supporting and nurturing our sons and daughters over the last 18-plus years, our support takes on a new look when Samford partners with us to continue shaping and molding them into who God has called them to be. The Samford Parents Association provides parents and family members a wonderful avenue to actively participate in this partnership.
The Samford Parents Association is one of the strongest, most vital partnerships Samford has, and your involvement supports the university in many ways. Our mission—to support and encourage the university, our students and Samford families in very intentional ways--is at the very heart of our partnership.
Your involvement through the association also contributes 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.
