Center for Outdoor Leadership Brings Live Falcons to Misenheimer Campus

Coordinated by student trip  leader Ricky Romanek, the program brought to life the impressive splendor of the Pfeiffer mascot. According to Dr. Luke Dollar, biology professor and director of National Geographic's Big Cat Initiative, “The program was a homerun in terms of educational quality and engaging students in learning.”

“I never knew there was so much to know about falconry,” said Dr. Russ Sharples, vice president of student development. “The strength and power of the falcon is representative of the Pfeiffer spirit, and our students would certainly benefit from participating in more of these engaging, experiential education programs.”
