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.

Don't go here unless you want to be a rude, rich, pretentious person who only cares about money and impressing other people. On the outside, they try to make this school seem like they actually care, like genuine character is important to them. The students are snobby, the professors are self absorbed, and everyone is very fake. I regret going here and feel like I have wasted time and money.

For this reason, there isn't much going on here and especially on the weekends it is a suitcase school Sun, 11 Dec 2016 01:28:10 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/AL/SU_comments.html StudentsReview: Negative Review about Samford for Nursinghttp://www.studentsreview.com/AL/SU_comments.html 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;...

Take your parents hard-earned income and go elsewhere .

If you aren't involved in something, especially Greek life, you will be bored constantly. The campus is boring, and there is absolutely nothing to do on weekends. The worst part about Samford is the poor facilities. Every dorm room I've ever been in is old and falling apart... This applies for both male and female dorms. The hot water doesn't work half of the time, there is mold all in the showers, and it is just overall disgusting. The bathrooms look like something out of the 50's, and they looks like they haven't been renovated or cleaned since the 50's, as well. Overall, classes are fine. They are challenging, yet you learn a lot. There is a lot of room for growth and professors that are willing to have a relationship with students in order for academic and personal success. I am actually transferring next semester. Samford isn't for everyone, and I guess it just wasn't for me. If you are coming to Samford, be prepared for a very small environment. Yet, if that is for you, then by all means go for it! Fri, 25 Mar 2016 02:01:30 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/AL/SU_comments.html
