The atmosphere of a college campus during the start of a new football season is something that is anticipated all year. Students are more than stoked to gather together for a few hours to eat, play corn hole, find friends, and enjoy the community that Samford has, all before heading to Seiburt Stadium to support the Bulldogs. I was especially stoked for Samford’s kickoff game because it was my very first of many. I am Samantha McCrabb, a sophomore, and a transfer student.
I have come to find that the community at Samford is incomparable. When students gather together to support a sport so dearly treasured by our nation, it is the best kind of community. I was able to turn in any direction and find friends or even new friends to meet and have great conversations with while tailgating. Samford students sure love their time on the Quad and it is something you can not miss out on as a student.
One of my favorite things about my first game as a Samford Bulldog was that I was able to enjoy a mix of all students in one place. Every student makes their way around the entire quad and it seems to be difficult for a student stay in one spot for more than ten minutes. I love it because most students are extremely intentional about meeting new people and finding good conversation. It is an even greater experience to go cheer on the team, especially when the Bulldogs win 45-16. My first football game as a Samford Bulldog was an amazing experience and I can not wait to find what the rest of the season holds.
