With three campuses, "campus life" at Pfeiffer has several meanings.
At our residential undergraduate campus in Misenheimer, students live, learn, work, worship and play with the support of Pfeiffer faculty and Student Development professionals. Student clubs and organizations, honor societies, work-study, and Falcons athletics supplement a challenging academic life, providing an enriching learning and living experience.
In Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, with class schedules designed to fit the needs of working adults, students are on campus typically in the evenings after the workday. Each of these campuses offers space for students to meet informally, share a meal and use the library or computer lab. Students have opportunities to meet with their professors, engage in professional societies and organizations that provide activities and projects that enhance their learning experience and enhance their careers.
