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.

Pfeiffer University is a warm and welcoming place. The faculty and staff all worked with me. They were helpful from the beginning with the application process, through admissions, financial aid, and choosing my classes.
The class ratios are awesome 10-15:1. The professors are great and willing to offer help anyway possible to make sure you are a success. There isn't a big party scene because it is in the country, but it's location is 20 minutes from 2 major cities where you can find everything you need from clothes to clubs. The campus is filled with history and kept up very clean.
