College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I don't believe there is off campus housing available. There may have been at one point, but to my knowledge, at the present time there is only on campus housing available.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I like the options around campus. The school is not located in the city, so there isn't a wide variety, but the choices we do have are decent, priced well, and a good portion of them allow students to use a portion of their meal plan (flex dollars) to pay for the food.

Administration: I think parking is the only thing I've really seen them be strict about. Park in the wrong spot for too long and you'll have a very pricey ticket waiting for you when you get back, and possibly even a threat to have the car towed. In terms of alcohol and drugs, the school policies are strict about their use on campus, however usually people find a way to get around it and use them anyways. If you're caught you will have to face serious consequences. It's hard for security to keep track of which students are of legal drinking age and who will be throwing parties that could potentially be inviting underage students. It's at these parties that some drugs may get in, but I haven't seen drug use in my time here. The primary vice is alcohol.

Scholarships: I received a good amount of financial aid from the school. I am grateful for what they've given me since I'm aware that not every school is as helpful as Pace is. Unfortunately the aid they've provided me with is still not enough and my family has had to take out loans to help cover the remaining tuition payment. And with the cost going up every year, it's gotten worse. Your first year is when they give you the best offer. Afterwards, with each year you're there the amount slowly decreases.

Party Scene: Pace isn't really known for it's parties, mainly because they're not that great.

Campus Food: The food choices appear good at first then you get tired of it all when you realize that it's always the same options available every week. Luckily there are a number of off campus options that students can go to and use a portion of their meal plans for (referred to as flex dollars). Mixing up the off campus choices with the cafeteria food can be a good idea, until you run out of flex dollars. Then you're stuck with the cafeteria food and there will be times you will rather not eat because nothing seems appetizing.

Campus Housing: Each dorm has it's own atmosphere and can be enjoyable if the residents are willing to participate in dorm activities. For the tuition that's being paid, dorms need to be upgraded. They are not attractive and bring a number of infestation and heat/cooling issues.

Scholarships: The financial aid process was quiet easy. Once you apply to the school and you fill out FAFSA the school will automatically send out a financial aid packet.Then you go onto your personal Pace portal an accept all of the grants, scholarships and loans pace has offered you. I personally believe that Pace is very generous and is always willing to hep[ students financially. So if you ever feel you deserve more money or simply need help with options for paying your bill is call/visit Pace's financial aid office. Also contact Pace for more information on the Pace Payment Tuition Plan because I know it has personally helped me during my financial struggles.

Party Scene: I think the party scene on campus is great because it's not too much. Everyone on campus knows that the party scene is at the townhouses or in Wilcox gym when organizations get approved by the school to throw a school wide party in the gym. It is very uncommon that you have a severe accidents due to partying at Pace and it's pretty safe. School security is always available in case of an accident which is thankfully not often. The school's drinking policy is well known by the students and those who choice to disregard the policy are handled by the school's authority (RA, RD, Dean,etc.) Students really get the chance to safely have a great time at Pace sponsored and personal student parties.

Campus Food: There are two dining options on Pace's main campus and several off-campus locations that has teamed up with pace. The two on campus dining areas are Kessel Student Center and the Pace Mart located in miller (a hall that holds most of the classes). Kessel is the main dining hall which has recently been renovated to included more dining options on the menu and increased seating areas. The menus are mostly the same other then the daily specials that are shown on a flat screen or can be found on the Pace Mobile App. In Kessel there is a grill that has several options to pick from, a self serving area where the specials are served, a pizza\pasta section, a parfait/smoothie section, a newly installed salad bar, a Chinese food and sushi section, a burrito bar, a soup bar, deli section and there are frozen food options, a fruit/dessert stand and many beverage options. The Pace Mart is very convenient for a quick snack or a microwavable meal when you have a break between classes and is located in the middle of the building so you can always find a friend there. Pace has an agreement with several locations in the surrounding community that allows students to use their flex dollars which is a type of meal plan money that substitutes or actual dollars.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. It gives me a sense of freedom but a true sense of responsibility. It may be cheaper to commute but living on campus encourages me to be involved and make friends with people that I probably wouldn't have met if it wasn't for the dorms. The social atmosphere around my school is great. You don't see cliques and it is very diverse. The housing points in my school is done based on a down payment, filling out an online application and housing points. You receive a maximum of 8 points for QPA, maximum of 14 points for credit hours completed, maximum of 5 points for campus involvement, maximum of 7 points for hall involvement, maximum of 2 points of community service and a maximum of 1 point for housing a potential incoming freshmen. Since the housing points aren't only based on things done in the dorms, it makes it easier for commuters who want to become residents to get a good chance in the picking of the dorms. The dorms are located at a good distance from the buildings where classes are held which gives the campus a sense of separation between class and down time in the dorms. The campus even has a late night deli which is very convenient for those when you have/choose to stay up really late because they have a place on campus to eat instead of traveling outside of campus late. I truly enjoy living on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: It's difficult to find a reasonable location in Manhattan, so many people choose to look for spots in Brooklyn. The main reasons for this are cost and quality.

Off-Campus Dining: The dining options are endless, and the food is the best. Student discounts give an added incentive to explore the area.

Administration: The administration encourages students to join student organizations, and even to create new ones (with approval) if they don't find one suitable. An example of one such organization would be a self defense club that was recently started.

Scholarships: For my first year at Pace, the financial aid process seemed like a bit of a hassle, but going into my second year I've learned what's important to focus on. One important tip is that you should file your FAFSA as early as possible, in order to get most possible financial aid.

Party Scene: The party scene definitely can have a positive impact on the student experience. It allows you the opportunity to meet new people, including music artist themselves, and provides a way to relax after a long week of studying and completing assignments.

Campus Food: Campus food is expensive, but it's also of great quality. There is an abundance of options on the menu and you never have to eat the same thing twice (unless you want to).

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great because of the close proximity to the university itself. It's also great because you're in Manhattan, "the city that never sleeps" and there's always something to do or check out.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big thing in Pace. I was in recruitment about a month ago, the process is stressful but you learn a lot about yourself and others going through the process.

Off-Campus Housing: off-campus housing is a hassle. the prices can get fairly high and it is difficult to find a place close to school so the bes bet would be in brooklyn.

Off-Campus Dining: Flex dollars come in handy with of campus dining. GRK, Rosella's and subway are the best choices to go to if you don't want to go all the way to the caf. Wanted is also great to go to at 2am when everything else is closed

Administration: The strictness of the school especially in dorms helps keep it safe with a limited number of incidents. although there are only 10 overnight passes for guests per person, it is very reasonable and you rarely need more

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
