Pfeiffer University was a blessing that I did not know I needed. The Comprehensive Science/Secondary Education Program welcomed me with open arms. The professors were one of a kind, always attending my basketball games and willing to work with me and my schedule. They became like family. I always wanted to be a teacher, ever since I was a little girl, and Pfeiffer took a dream of mine and turned it into a passion and a career that I will forever be grateful for. Go Falcons!
