the school is pretty small, but i feel that it's the perfect size. when i tell people i go to samford, they usually say "STANFORD?!?? good for you!!" :) when i'm not in class, i'm mingling or sitting at the ben brown plaza, a central place outside with a nice fountain and benches (everyone passes by there, and lots of people hang out between classes...sometimes during classes too). birmingham has several schools (UAB, birmingham southern, and some community colleges) in addition to samford, but it's NOT a college town. i feel that it's a young professional kind of town. people aren't obsessed with samford sports, but there's definitely school pride. people like taking advantage of campus safety, which is sometimes sad, but mostly a little bit funny. they jump in the fountains, climb all the buildings on campus, and try to get away with some goofy pranks. always fun... samford has a great spirit to it...awesome people. some downers, but they usually transfer. i have met my best friends here. maybe i'm being so optimistic because i'm graduating and feeling like i miss it already.
academics are good. classes are smaller and class participation is usually key in every class. there are groups at samford where people engage in the areas of study that they're interested in (model un, debate team, different honor societies, etc.)
students are predominantly right.
