I came to Samford for the FYNT elementary education program. I was unprepared and did not fit in. I did not always enjoy myself and did not have the ideal personality for the program.

I was not terribly motivated and technically barely made it through. I was not that happy with the school when I left and have not even applied for a job in education.

That being said, looking back, I must say that I actually had a positive experience at Samford. The Education program and faculty were top rate. I have nothing but respect for nearly all the professors I had. I learned more than I realized despite procrastinating and never putting nearly my best efforts towards my schooling.

For prospective students, I would say that Samford has a great education program if you really want to be a teacher and are ready to work hard to get through school.

The only problems I have with the program are its overabundance of young, white, upper middle class, Southern female students who want to teach in suburban schools; it seems to be designed for them. If there was one reason I would not choose the program if I knew what I do now, it is because I am much more interested in teaching the less well off—an opportunity I feel was not given to me in the FYNT program.

The campus is beautiful and safe. The location is pretty much near everything you'd want to go to. and there's plenty to do in the area if you know where to look.
