Do your homework!! I had hesitations immediately butBrightCommunications
Do your homework!! I had hesitations immediately but thought it would get better if I toughed it out but no such luck. I'll always regret not transferring ASAP because once you wait it's too difficult to transfer credits and you waste your college experience with a bunch of weirdos. The students are very nice and friendly but are either one or more of the following: very baptist/ evangelical, come from a smaller private christian school, are from a small town, were homeschooled, are strange and/ or socially awkward, received an athletic scholarship, are a preacher's kid, or enrolled and hoped to transfer/ did transfer. There is no middle ground here either you fit one of the above criteria or you're miserable and want to transfer. Don't listen to your advisor either because they'll dissuade you from transferring, just start the process as soon as you realise this is not the school for you.

3rd yr nursing student and all of theSuper BrilliantNursing
3rd yr nursing student and all of the nursing classes are taught by multiple teachers - as many as 4-6 -- which is NOT conducive for learning as tests are inconsistent with the lectures -- wonder why; Samford did not tell us such during school visit; most nursing teachers are not helpful since they are part time and do not offer after hours class sessions for the confusion resulting from multiple teachers for a course. Take your parents hard-earned income and go elsewhere .

Literally do not come here if you areQuite BrightNursing
Literally do not come here if you are somewhat of a social person. This campus is full of people who were not so cool in high school and then this is their time to shine. Absolutely no social life. I am greek and some of our socials included plying "capture the flag." being greek means nothing here because you don't do anything socially. Girls are looking for their husbands here. Everyone I have talked to is physically on the look out for someone they can marry. Here I have met about 25 juniors and seniors that are engaged to be married. If you graduate from the nursing program, you will be staying in Birmingham, or the south. No one outside of the south really has ever heard of the school. The atmosphere is just weird here honestly, and if you are not a southern Baptist DO NOT COME HERE. I am catholic and people constantly try to convert me, not to mention we prayed before classes which I find a little odd. Please please please listen to me!! If you want a social life or normal college experience at all, don't come here!!!! I wish I never did and I'm trying hard to get applications in on time to transfer next semester.
