Samford University Top Questions

What kind of person should not attend this school?


I can't imagine that anyone would not like Samford. If the student is very liberal or very atheist - Samford might not be for them.


A person who is not serious about their education or a person who does not strive to become a better and more intelligent individual.


The type of person who should attend Samford is someone who desires a more student focused education. The person should be ambitious and ready to give their best to their academic career because the faculty gives their best for them. I feel that the student should also desire a closer walk with the Lord.


Someone who doesn't want to succeed academically should not attend this school.


Samford is a great place for just about any of my peers., with a few exceptions. Although it provides fun opportunities and an exciting social environment, this school is not the best place for someone only interested in the college party life. Being deeply grounded on Christian principles, anyone also unwilling to accept the moral reasoning behind Samford's rules and regulations would most likely feel uncomfortable at the university. Those are a few examples of minor reasons why Samford may not be the place for everyone.


The type of person that shouldn't attend this school is a person who parties and expects to drink and rough house. The school is very respectful and the students are not the partying types. If they aren't responsible they shouldn't attend this school because they would get lost in their coursework.


A withdrawn, closed-minded individual who expects his or her college to provide endless entertainment for its students, eliminating the need to plug themselves in to activities on their own initiatives, would be sorely disappointed at Samford.


There is no one who shouldn't attend this school, however there is certainly a type of person. Students are very accepting of gay/lesbian lifestyles, but the administration is not, and racial diversity is not the school's strongest suit. However, there is a very open and accepting atmosphere that surrounds the entire student body. The students are predominantly southern with an emphasis on business, but there is room for everyone here.


People who love to party all the time, slack off on school, drinkers, and people who are not comfortable in a private christian college setting.


If one is looking for a larger school with more emphasis on athletics and partying, then samford is not the right choice!


Anyone who likes small environments.


If you are looking for a big school with huge classes and little professor and student interaction then Samford University is not for you. If you are looking for a school where you can party all the time and attending classes are not important then Samford is also not for you.


not comfortable with Christian influence


Someone who doesn't like authority or a structured environment. Anyone who has seen The Stepford Wives and thinks oh wow that's scary because the deeper you look at Samford the more it looks like Stepford.
