​Samford Ambassadors Mission

The Samford University Ambassadors strive to serve the university through leadership by building relationships according to John 13:15-17 which states, "For I have given you an example, that you should do just as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."​

"The Beeson" Bowtie 

The male Samford Ambassadors are proudly wearing "The Beeson" Bowtie from Brier & Moss Clothiers. Brier and Moss, founded by two Samford alumni, named this signature tie after Samford's own Ralph Waldo Beeson. The Samford Ambassadors thank Brier & Moss for their partnership.
