â€œIt's important to demonstrate to students that alumni take their needs seriously,â€ said Pixie Klein Gentle '83, president of Pfeiffer's Alumni Board. â€œThis opportunity allows students and alumni to get to know each other better, spotlights the career success that is possible with a Pfeiffer education and introduces employers from the greater community to Pfeiffer and the caliber of our students.â€
