Fool-Proof Tips for College Searching

This summer, our incoming freshmen have been registering for classes and attending Orientation. Isn't it crazy to think that could be you this time next year? We have some fool-proof tips to help you figure out the best way to college search:

1. Plan a road trip with family this summer and fall to tour colleges. While you're planning, go ahead and put Birmingham on your list. We're ready for you!

2. Make a list of pros and cons when it comes to college. Public vs. private? Big vs. perfect-size? Close to home or far away?

3. Join upcoming seniors on Zeemee and connect. Create a Zeemee account and feel free to select Samford to connect with. It's no commitment - just a helpful tool!

4. Did you know you can apply to multiple schools by filling out ONE application? Apply using the Common Application and don't forget to add Samford to your list of schools! For more info, visit
