2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teacher are selfish and the cafeteria sucks. The school is too sensitive when it comes to arguments. They don't take time to listen to the students, and it's a waste of money.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far attending my school is good. I made friends and learned a lot. My school is unique due to all the different opportunities it offers to students and the many different people that I have met there. I am a nursing student and the nursing program offered at my school is extremely competitive and challenging. I try my best when it comes to school and give it my all with school work and studying. I would choose my school over again because it feels like home. Even though I commute to school because I live close enough to campus and its not the most glamorous school, I like it because it feels like I'm exactly where I am supposed to be and that is all I need when it comes to the right school.

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at school thus far. I have had the opportunity to build a connection with my professors and they have a genuine interest in my success in school, and after. Although I might have enjoyed a different university I strongly believe the experiences I have gained in my field would not have been available to me at another institution. I stand by my decision.

Overall Experience: Pace is a very unique school for very unique people. You have to be extremely hard working, you have to have tenacity and you have to be focused on your future to really make this school work for you. If you are looking for an A typical college experience or to have all the luxuries of NYU without the price tag, then don't come here; thats not what you are getting.

Pace is a very niche school, if you are going there undecided or just to test the waters you might not like it. If you are serious about you major and know what you want to do, then it might just be perfect for you. The Pace School of Performing arts, the Lubin School of business, Seidenberg School of Computer Science are all really fantastic. But you have to want to be there, you have to want to work hard. So many people complain about not having opportunities and not liking the school it's self but they are the people who don't do their home work, don't talk to their teachers and don't take the classes seriously. This school has a lot to offer if you are willing to work hard. I myself worked with a professor of mine this past summer and had a great experience and learned a lot. Another person I know got to be an assistant on a very cool medical research case this summer, all because she asked her teacher. If you want opportunities dropped in you lap, then leave now. If you are willing to seek out what you want, you probably will find it.

Pace isn't without it's fair share of un-lovelyness. There are a lot of kids there who just wanted to go to school in the city and pretty much are only here to party and don't go to class or do work. There are also a lot of kids who are going here because this was the next best thing to NYU (those are a lot of the people who complain). The OSA office is hell, thats no lie. The cafeteria could be better, and the main building could do with a makeover to be able to accommodate the growing population. But overall this school is really awesome.

Overall Experience: The school is very small, and living off campus is expensive. Living on campus is nice however the dorms are very small. The teachers are okay and the work load isn't huge. The school is not very difficult Freshman year.

Overall Experience: My school does its best to make their students feel at home, and to help them integrate the school atmosphere more easily. It also helps students in their job or internship search.

Overall Experience: So far my school is the most accepting and judgement free atmosphere I have ever been in. At orientiarion, everyone was able to be completely themselves and it was so beautiful to witness. I would choose my school again because I love New York City and all the opportunity that follows going to college in the city that never sleeps.

Overall Experience: I love everything about Pace. The Manhattan campus is where it's at, considering how many opportunities you have with living in the city. The professors are wonderful if you know how to communicate with them properly and respectively, and the offices can be very helpful. I just wish tuition and room and board weren't so expensive... But the ties I have made and the knowledge I have learned within just one year at Pace will all be worth it. I love my school!

Overall Experience: The computer science schools feels like home! The students and faculty are friendly.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love going to Pace so much. It's nearby so many attractions, there are always things to do, there are a handful of helpful/fun professors and Pace does help students with job fairs and internships. Pace also throws a variety of events that are fun and different. The only downside to Pace is how unhelpful they can be when it comes to financial aid. Tuition is rising way too fast and it's definitely unnecessary (many students feel this way). Occasionally, there are professors that are rude, sometimes the RD's can be disrespectful and there will always be issues with OSA. Pace would be the perfect school if they would lower tuition and help their students with financial issues.

Overall Experience: I have never heard of a school with such little concern for research and top level academics. All the President cares about is money, clearly, and spends more of it "beautifying" an already acceptable campus rather than on attracting top professors and students. The only reason students used to complain about the campus is because they charge over 50,000/yr per student, so given that we should have better dorms. That being said, I don't think dorms would be a concern if the education we paid for was worth it. If you just want to graduate barely having learned anything and receiving inflated grades, this school is for you. I, however, will be leaving this school at least 15 IQ points lower, and that's a whole standard deviation.

Overall Experience: It was good. Some schools I really loved and others I felt so out of place during the tour that I had to leave.

Overall Experience: Although this school can be complicated it's ok.

2 College Junior

Health & Safety: Campus security needs to improve greatly. I understand that Pace security cannot be everywhere at all times, but we rarely go a few months without a security warning about something. Security needs to be improved and taken more seriously when something happens.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Pace needs to be better at helping students with scholarships. I haven't had any offers from anyone at Pace, and it would be incredibly helpful if Pace offered seminars on how/when/where to get scholarships, especially since this is such a pricey school.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I have never pledged, but I know a lot of women and men that have. In my opinion, the rush week and hazing stuff is unnecessary and sometimes, very unfair. I personally wouldn't pledge or join greek life here.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing actually could be worse. The most disappointing thing about it really is the price we pay - it's way too expensive for what we are given, especially since Pace has a lot of money. I think that campus housing is average, but it would be nicer if they either lowered the price, or gave us more luxury items for the price we actually are paying. Honestly, owning an apartment is cheaper, it's just about paying out of pocket.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's New York City. Housing is expensive, space is limited, and there are some people so desperate to have a space to call their own that they will try to trick you or sabotage you so that they can get the apartment that you were both after.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The food is good and diverse. It's just that the prices are ridiculously high and the discounts you get off of the prices practically makes no difference. Case in point: 10% discount at Red Mango can mean cents off a drink which is pointless to me.

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.
