Where do your gifts intersect with the needs of our country and our region? At Pfeiffer – whether you dream about trading on Wall Street, being part of a life-saving surgical team, shaping policy in Raleigh or Washington, or teaching and coaching in a small town – students explore that question and their futures every day with qualified and engaged professors, coaches, and other professionals. In fact, studies show that, at Pfeiffer, students spend more time with their professors exploring where they “fit” in the professional world than students at most other schools. Join us in “the Village” for a life-changing experience that will prepare you for a lifetime of service!
