Pfeiffer students arrive this weekend

MISENHEIMER — This weekend, Pfeiffer University welcomes more than 700 students to its undergraduate campus.
The freshman class and transfer students moved in Friday with upperclassmen to return Sunday.
Students are returning to campus to discover several campus enhancements completed over the summer.
In addition to new directional and building signs on campus and the availability of new smart phone apps that alert students when their laundry is done, students who are communications, music and art majors will have access to a new Apple computer lab.
There is fresh paint for the Merner Gym and fitness room in the Knapp Center, the latter backed by Warren and Fran Knapp.
“The arrival of students brings renewed energy to campus after summer break,” said Michael C. Miller, who is leading his first academic year launch since being named Pfeiffer’s president in December. “As faculty members and student leaders returned earlier this week, it became clear quickly that this promises to be a positive year for Pfeiffer.”
Today, freshmen will participate in a service project that takes them to 12 public parks from Albemarle to Salisbury for general clean up, an activity described by Rev. Dana McKim, minister to the university, as the students’ first official act of “servant leadership,” a component of the Pfeiffer experience.
