Facilities: On account of how expensive the school is, one would expect better facilities. The campus on the whole needs to be modernized and remodeled. I am not sure where tuition costs are going.

Campus Housing: On campus housing is acceptable. It is very convenient, in terms of closeness to the school and attractions.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The price for off-campus housing is much cheaper, but one would need to travel further away from the dorms for cheaper housing.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Pace is very strict, but all the restrictions are beneficial to the students.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Professors are always very willing to help support students where and when they can. Courses are very challenging, but there are many outside sources students can turn to for help and answers.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Pace holds a job fair twice a year, which helps students find internships and jobs within the New York City area. There are many options.

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Despite its price, nightlife is very fun. There is a place for everyone within close proximity to the campus.

5 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Again, my school is located in New York so diversity is at its finest. There are all sorts of people on campus at all times. I am very proud to say that.

5 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: My school is located in Lower Manhattan, there is ALWAYS something to do.

Athletics: There are zero athletic departments on my particular campus, so there is not much to say about athletics.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Pace security is no joke. There are so many security guards, no one is able to pass through pass without getting questioned. Pace has 24-hour security surveillance. I know that I am safe and secure whenever I am at my dorm or in class. There has only been one incident involving a Pace student, but that wasn't near the university at all. In order to get into Pace you must have a Pace ID or someone has to sign you in.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Well I really don't know to much about that life. Though know many Greeks and they rep all day everyday. There are Greek days and cool school parties that are thrown in the school halls for those who are interested or who want to just come and have fun. They are very welcoming and social. It doesn't really matter whether or not you about that Greek life because we all still tend to get along.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Pace University is one of the most accepting and diverse schools known to man. Everyone is so friendly and so nice. This was one of the reasons why I choose to come here. It doesn't matter what race, religion, sexual orientation you are. Everyone gets along with everyone. We are like one big family. People love you for you and it is almost like a community and everyone is always there to lend you a helping hand. I have met some many great and beautiful people from all types of backgrounds.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The cafe is not bad, I mean the options are not that bad, although many would say that there could be a little more healthy options. The cafe should be opened a little late because once the cafe closes at 12am many people get hungry and have to go outside to get food. Though by that time many places are closed, so the popular place many go is McDonald's or Wanted. McDonald should be on the list of places we can use flex dollars.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Being in the biology department is not easy. As a matter of fact, the workload is nowhere little but it is very time-consuming. The teachers are quality teachers because they actually know what they are doing and really know how to capture all of the student's attention. I all always come out of their classes knowing something more every time. The teachers interact with their student's and always has time for any questions we may need to ask about the lesson. They always have office hours and really try to help in any way that they can.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Pace university is filled with professors who care for their students as well as making sure they get the most out of the course. Though there are of course some professors who can care less and are just there for the money, but I end up passing the class so I'm not complaining. There is a vast variety of courses at Pace just last semester I took Arabic and now this semester I am taking a course on the Literature of the Africans. It is so diverse and what's crazy is that you get college credit. The registration process as some would say is unfair in ways because it is always upperclassmen who get first priority . By the time the underclassmen choose their classes, there are really not that many classes open. The library is huge! They have so many private and quiet places in the library, but there are not that many outlets to plug in laptops or phones, which sucks.

Facilities: The computer labs and computer availability on campus is pretty amazing, but IT changed the wireless internet access and now its shotty at best

3 College Senior

Scholarships: There is a lot of financial aid available to undergraduate students. However, graduate students are out of luck on this front unless they work for the school.

2 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: I honestly don't think the Locals like Pace Students. A student was shot near the bar in 2010 and the locals very much so sided with the police officer that shot him. The police officer was in the wrong.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Its all what you make of it. In underclassmen dorm, a lot of people socialize around the dorm. However, in upperclassmen housing, people tend to be more shut off.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: With the exception of TownHouse day, its getting harder to party on campus. A lot of underage drinking goes on at the local bars, and some of age people venture out to White Plains for a good time.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Residential life tends to crack down hard on alcohol. However, a lot of drug use goes unnoticed.

3 College Senior

Athletics: The athletic department is always working towards getting more attendance at the sporting events. The baseball team has always been great and the other sports have good years and bad ones.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: There's a wide variety of types of guys and girls at Pace. You will definitely see everyone that goes to Pace at some point, but there are some hidden gems that sometimes go unnoticed.

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.
