What I love most about Pfeiffer is the close knit community, everyone there is like family. I love the student teacher ratio, if i need any type of help I know my professor will provide as much help as they are able. The diversity is amazing, being friends with people from all over the world is amazing, what better way to get cultured than by your peers. One thing I think I would change is our culture credit system, I understand the University's perspective of them but sixty credits is a lot. You have to factor each individual student and what they do in their personal life that sometimes creates scheduling conflict for students to attend the culture credit opportunities. My overall opinion on Pfeiffer is I love it. I honestly could not see my self anywhere else and I knew this from when I toured Pfeiffer because I looked at my mom and said, I feel like I belong here. Now two years later I am a sophomore and willfully continuing my journey through Pfeiffer.
Review Your College
Pfeiffer University is a student first school, you might think this is an advertisement or reading off a brochure but I can claim I have felt welcome as an out of state resident. As a small campus you can get to class in 5 minutes tops. As an accountant major, I feel confident in all my classes, where the professors really attempt to make a relationship with you so that you can have connections after you graduate try to reach for jobs. I will say that great dorms is something to wish for here, as they seem like they have not had maintenance since the 90's and the food gets plain 2 weeks into the year. Pfeiffer is located in the middle of the woods and in the rural areas of North Carolina, but Charlotte is located about 45 minutes away if you want leisure time. The cops in the Misenheimer area are without a doubt the best as they go the distance to makes sure the students are safe first before taking disciplinary action.
I genually enjoy Pfeiffer University. I love being part of such a great school. The classes are small enough for one on one interactions with the faculty and staff. Pfeiffer is a family. Everyone I meet here is so welcoming and they enjoy education just as well as myself!
