The two years that I went to Pfeiffer was a fun time, a sad time, and a huge learning experience. I got to meet and interact with different people. The staff was great all the way from the CEO to the janitors. They do their best to make you feel at home. If you’re not used to being in the middle of nowhere it’s going to take time to get used to it but it’s not bad. I would suggest having a car if you plan to go here because there are many different places you can go to in Albemarle or Salisbury and Charlotte is only a 45 min drive. What I would change at pfeiffer is the fact that they don’t have a football team that would make pfeiffer almost perfect. What I like most is how everyone comes out to support every sport there. I also like the student to teacher ratio. It helps you get a good connection with the teacher. If you do decide to go to pfeiffer stay safe, pay attention, don’t be a follower, learn when to say no, make good decisions, and stay up on your school work.
I believe the college of Pfeiffer University is a well persevered school to pursue your education. Pfeiffer has impacted my life for the better. While Pfeiffer is a "get involved" campus they offer lots of fun and meaningful events. My favorite event is every month on the second Sunday a group gets together to feed the homeless at the local homeless shelter. If there was one thing I would change about Pfeiffer it would be the weird academic credit hours and how some or most credits do not transfer in or out.
