Samford University, "a beautiful liberal arts college with Christian values," draws undergrads seeking "a close-knit community in which high value is placed on morality, academic excellence and communication skills." Students tell us that "Samford represents what is great about a Christian university. It provides an environment that is diverse and not typically conservative Christian." A "well-rounded, challenging curriculum" ensures that students transcend indoctrination while experiencing "some aspect of religious discussion…in classes where you would not usually encounter it." High expectations ensure that they don't coast through to an easy degree.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
