PFEIFFER UNIVERSITY REVIEW

The reason why I had chosen this college is because I liked that it was very small and felt like home. Coming from someone with very bad social anxiety, I wanted to choose a college that wasn't overwhelming and large.


Course Curriculum - 

I feel that the course curriculum for my major at Pfeiffer university is not as bad as the others. Most of all my classes and depending on the professors are teaching all the material and we just have to review for it on each exam. And the better u get at knowing the material for each class. It only gets easier as long as you study and work hard.
