I have really enjoyed every moment of attending Pace University. The education comes with a hefty price tag, however I feel like the quality of my education, the internship and job opportunities, as well as the flourishing prospects of New York City make this university quite unique and definitely worth every bit of my money and time.

There is no other place like pace! The PPA (Pace Perforing Arts) program is such a great learning environment and the school itself is such an orietened community, despite the usual NYC quirks.

I love the people I've met and become acquainted to. There are so many opportunities to be involved on campus and help the community.
