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, 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. 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.
The postcards will be showcased around the main level grand staircase.
