Chelsi Haefele
Knapp Center Coordinator

My name is Chelsi Haefele. I grew up in Topeka, Kansas. I am currently a senior at Pfeiffer University pursuing an accounting degree. I have been involved in a variety of sports and outdoor activities since youth, therefore the department of Campus Recreation is a perfect fit.  Being blessed with the opportunity to be the captain of the Pfeiffer University women's tennis team for the past two seasons, I can carry my experiences into the Campus Recreation Department. Sports and outdoor activities are my passion. Campus Recreation has given me great leadership skills, that I will continue to apply in a various areas of my life. One of my favorite quotes by Vince Lombardi is, "Leaders aren't born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work.  And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal."









Brittany Papaj

Campus Recreation Coordinator

I am a junior at Pfeiffer, pursuing a degree in elementary education and a minor in history. I had the opportunity to be a part of the women's soccer team, and was their captain this year. Growing up I was always involved in a variety of different sports and in high school, where I played basketball and soccer.

Sports have always been a passion of mine, which is why campus recreation is a great fit for me. Having the opportunity to impact lives with sports and outdoor activity inspires me.

This is a great job because I get to be a part of something I love! Being a part of Campus Recreation allows me to be a leader and share my own experiences with others.  I will use the skills I have learned from Campus Recreation in everyday life and carry with me in the work field.
