Samford University


Parents and Family

family weekend

Congratulations on your student's acceptance to Samford, and welcome to the family! We strongly encourage you to attend Bulldog Days alongside your student. If this is your first student attending college, or your last, there is something for you at Orientation. Bulldog Days prepares parents for the adjustments to college and the transition your student will experience. You will learn all about the university, resources available for parents and students, and meet other new Samford families as well. Your support of your student's education is critical to his or her success. All new Samford students are required to attend a two-day orientation session, so we hope you'll make it a point to attend as well.

Once your student enrolls, you are automatically a member of Samford's Parents Association. For more information about parent programs at Samford, visit
