Samford University Reviews
Samford offers many programs that one may excel in, but above all else, I am surprised to find that every staff member, faculty, employee meets you with kindness and a willing attitude to serve you. Entering the pharmacy program this coming fall, they have been so adamant about preparing you for success, and that says a lot about the program's integrity!
I am Greek, so I'm a little biased, but I love Greek Life! We have a really good Greek Life Office and lots of programs and activities. There are now 6 sororities and 5 fraternities, everyone has a house except for one newer fraternity and the new sorority. The greek housing is pretty nice, it's not on the state school level, but it's nicer than most of the other dorms on campus. From my experience, being Greek doesn't mean that I am only friends with my sorority sisters, yes I spend a lot of time with them and I love them, but my "friend group" has only two other greeks in it, the rest are independents. Being Greek at Samford doesn't define you, you are given the choice to make it what you want to.
If I could go back to my senior year of high school I would not pick any other college. I am going into my Junior year and still having the best experience. I picked Samford because it is a small Christian college with a great nursing program. Samford amazes me daily with the community it brings. The people make Samford what it is. They are friendly to everyone and great people to learn and grow with making lifelong friends. Also, the academics do not disappoint. School is hard but the faulty make it worth it. The professors are genuinely caring to their students and what the best for them as a person. Another great addition is the proximity to Birmingham. Birmingham is only about 10 minutes away from Samford and it is always fun being a tourist in my own town. There is always something new to discover in Birmingham and a fun way to get off campus every once in awhile to explore. One thing I would like to see change is the food and library hours.
