Harris Hall

Harris Renovations Accommodate Growth, Improved Programs

Thanks to just-completed renovations in Harris Science Hall at Pfeiffer University, the Department of Natural Sciences now has four new classrooms and three revamped ones as well as a new conference room and a new suite of faculty offices. As a result, the department can now accommodate enrollment growth in its programs, which include biology, chemistry, environmental science, physics and math. Lectures, which once took place in labs, now take place in classrooms that are more conducive to lecturing and group work. The new conference room will host meetings of faculty, research groups and teleconferences with collaborators. Read More »      Virtual Tour »

All alumni are encouraged to stay connected and participate in the 2021 Alumni Directory project that is underway. Alumni are being contacted via mail and email and asked to work with our partner company PCI to update contact and career information. Your updates will also be added to Pfeiffer’s alumni database, so you will be included in newsletters, announcements, invitations and more, based on your Pfeiffer history, geographical location, current employment and interests, etc. Regardless of whether you purchase a directory, we want to include you in our 2021 edition! Get answers to the project’s frequently asked questions here.
