Pfeiffer now has a new address within the Research Triangle Park. On Oct. 25, current and prospective Pfeiffer students, alumni, staff, faculty and the community celebrated the university’s new location at 2880 Slater Rd. in Morrisville with an open house and information session. Morrisville Mayor Jackie Holcomb also attended the celebration.
The new location in Morrisville, a town of 15,000 residents located in the northeast central region, is twice the size of the former campus in Durham. The brand new facility contains larger, smart classrooms, a video conferencing center, more office spaces, a new student lounge, new furnishings and several other amenities.
Pfeiffer officials believe the nearly 8,000-square-feet location is an attraction and could appeal to prospective students from the more than 1.5 million residents who live within a half-hour’s drive of Durham, Raleigh and Cary. The more-enhanced facility will also help the university to serve its 300+ students in the Triangle – and to meet the increasing demand for Pfeiffer’s programs offered in that region.
Establishedin 1885, Pfeiffer University is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. A comprehensive United Methodist-related university, with multiple campuses, including Misenheimer, Charlotte and the Triangle, Pfeiffer is committed to educational excellence, service and scholarship.
