3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's New York, so it's extremely competitive/expensive to find a good place in a safe area that's close to campus. However, it is possible, and can sometimes be cheaper than dorming. However, a lot of student's financial aid/scholarships cover a chunk of housing which gets cut if you do not dorm through pace. This often locks students into dorming, even when it may be more expensive.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Tech support at Pace NYC is great. I dropped off my laptop, and they gave me a loner laptop. Mine was repaired by the next day.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a lot of aid from Pace, and they are usually very generous. However, I think that the tuition should be less. I'm still paying a lot, despite my hefty scholarships and financial aid.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: So many options in walking distance, every kind of food you can imagine. Places on Fulton Street give student discounts.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Pace is located in the FiDi which is extremely quiet at night. This is good, because the campus is safe. I'm female and I feel comfortable walking around alone at late hours of the night. While the area is quiet, it is a short subway ride/walking distance to neighborhoods with great nightlife.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: You can be whoever you want to be here, without judgment. Probably about 50% of the men on the NYC campus are gay. In addition, many of my friends are rich.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym has what you need, though not stellar. There are no sports teams that anyone knows/talks about. There is little to no school spirit.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The thing that really upsets me about Pace is the fact that they find a way to fine students for everything. If you miss a floor meeting, fined ($75-$100!!). Or if your guest loses their guest sticker, $25. It's frankly a rip off.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: There is no nightlife on campus. However, the city is the real campus of Pace University NYC, therefore there are endless options for nightlife such as bars, clubs, concerts etc. Subway systems are extremely convenient and reliable and if you are willing to split the cost of a cab with some friends, that is always a good option too. However, partying in Manhattan gets extremely expensive.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are always security guards everywhere, which is definitely reassuring. However, it can get annoying when you are trying to sign guests in and how strict they are about this.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol is definitely present, but not so much on the campus as other schools. There isn't much drinking that goes on on campus, usually students go to bars and clubs.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Not as diverse as described.

Greek Life: You can't tell who is in greek life and who isnt.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Apartment can be a bit pricey, but its worth having the freedom.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The science program could be better.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi connection could be stronger. Also many people in the building are having trouble accessing the TUMBLR app on their phones.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: ALL of the varsity sports are at Pace's other campus in Westchester.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No one is judged/ pressured into drinking.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm a homebody, so I don't know much about the nightlife. Tee-hee

2 College Freshman

Transportation: The NYC MTA should give student discounts for college students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different varieties of good food available at anytime of the day. The prices my be a little high, but the student discount helps even it out.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Pace has "quiet hours" from eleven pm to nine am that follow the local noise ordinance. However some students completely ignore this rule. Also the RA don't try as hard as they should to enforce the rules. Sometime the second-hand smoke from my neighbor seeps in through the bottom of my door. My roommate and I both have allergies and it is unfortunate for us that we have to have them as a floor mate.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is tolerable. But when its very hot, random odors begin to surface and it affects the air quality. (Eww)

3 College Junior

Athletics: The Pleasantville campus does more spots if anything. Our school does not. We are known for our nursing school and performing arts school. We don't have much school spirit, but we do offer many athletic facilities and I see many people working out.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love being in New York City, but there are too many performing arts majors who drive me crazy with their personalities. While business students are studying and working on paper, in the next door room you can hear others prancing and jumping around, screaming and yelling. The security guards are sometimes rude at school.

For most students, they either love or hate Pace University. The people who love Pace probably like it for its generous financial aid package, location, and co-op opportunities. The students who would love to torch the establishment to the ground probably dislike it for its lack of financial support and crummy services. A lot of students have a strong dislike for the food and the Office of Student Aid (OSA). This office has misplaced many student files, causing many time delays for students to register for classes. The academic staff is very encouraging, which makes classes bearable.

Some students feel that the money they are paying to enroll should result in better and more efficient services that make the process of earning an education easier. While there are a good amount of wonderful people, there are just as many that are petty, acting like they still belong in high school. They can't seem to tolerate opinions other than their own. A few years ago, people obsessed over the now-defunct Web site called Juicy Campus, which was a virtual place where people established hurtful rumors about other students. Some people started rumors about a particular student, stating that that student was a vulgar person. When it comes to people on campus, and in life, you have to take the good with the bad.
