Samford Students Share their Secrets
November 1 - 30, 2009
First Floor, University Library

In early October, Samford students received a small white postcard in their mailboxes asking them to "Share Your Secret." Over the course of the month, the Samford community and anyone else who found a postcard around campus were encouraged to share a secret anonymously that they have never told anyone. The secret could be “a regret, fear, worry, betrayal, desire, confession, or humiliation…anything you wish, as long as it is true and it is a secret.” Organized by a pair of Samford students, the goal of the project is to provide the Samford community with an outlet to share something that is, perhaps, bigger than themselves.

The idea stemmed from an original art project called "PostSecret," created by Frank Warren. See, and

The postcards will be displayed in the Library during the month of November. As observers view the returned postcards, it is hoped that they will find a connection with the anonymous secrets… and realize that their own secrets aren’t so bad after all.
