5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe when I'm on campus or nearby the school. The NYPD is everywhere, and campus security is just a phone call away if they're ever needed, too. It is the city, so keeping an eye on your stuff and not leaving it unattended is probably smart, but I've never experienced anything dangerous or crime-related on campus.

Overall Experience: Most of things here are pretty good. What desperately needs improvement, though, is the cafeteria and the ease of finding information/resources.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Pace's best features are the location (right in financial district, close to wall street), the ability to find good jobs, and the amazing internship opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I've had a great experience (mostly) with campus housing so far, but I know some people haven't had it so easy. The couple disappointing things are: small rooms, especially in Maria's Tower dorms; not always clean residence halls; VERY expensive. The newer residence halls are very nice, particularly the new Beekman building, John Street, and 182 Broadway. Maria's Tower needs some help, but it's also the best place to socialize and it's conveniently right on campus...no walk necessary!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life isn't big on the NYC campus. There are some sororities (but even more fraternities), and it seems like a great way to meet people. That being said, you can still find other ways to get involved in the Pace community and meet new people without participating in Greek life. If you're into Greek, fine...if not, fine!

2 College Freshman

Athletics: There are virtually no athletics or sports to speak of here at Pace. Occasionally there are basketball games in the gym, but aside from that all sports are on the Pleasantville campus. There's a gym and weight/workout room on the NYC campus, but basically no sports. However, nobody here cares about sports, so it's fine.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Throughout most of my first year here at Pace, I've had good experiences. I'm a freshman, so of course the classes, amenities, etc. aren't geared towards me yet...right now it's about getting through and searching for new opportunities. It's clear Pace is best known for their incredible internship opportunities, and the school has a lot of helpful resources if you care enough to explore and know where to look. I would say that while Pace has some good teachers who know their info well, they don't have a lot of good employees in general. Some employees are helpful, but the few that are rude and unhelpful stick out like a sore thumb. The worst thing about Pace is the cafeteria...the food is of poor quality, it's inconvenient, expensive, and worst of all the workers are generally very rude and slow. Pace is a good school in terms of jobs and work, but ought to take better care of their students while we're here.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: For $14,000 a year I am living in a room about the size of a cupboard. The furniture can barely even fit in the room. Granted, I have met some amazing people through my dorm experience but it is still an absolute rip off. "Non-profit" school my ass. On another note though the RAs are really great and try to get everyone involved, and people are only written up if they were being super obvious about drinking or just generally obnoxious

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: If you're involved, congrats, but it won't make or break you in the social scene. It's a great way to make friends if you don't have many or if you don't live on campus, but other than that anyone who isn't in Greek life really cares

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Don't come here if you want to play, watch, or talk about sports. Literally, no one cares. Between the vast majority of people being either women or gay men, you are better off going to a traditional school if you expect to spend your Sunday mornings cheering on the football team (mostly because we don't even have one at the NYC campus).

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Pace is anything but your run of the mill college. We have no real campus, an incredibly diverse student body, and one of the best locations in the world. There are some things that can be a real pain, I.e the sh***y cafeteria food and expensive student housing, but at the end of the day, you get an experience at pace unlike any other school. Eating, sleeping, and breathing New York in everyday is enough to make every flaw that pace has worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There's a lot of seminars given to raise awareness and prevent sexual assault. Security is always around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes aren't always the most fun but most professors are very good at what they do. They're usually small classes, most of the ones I've been in have had no more than 30 students. I've noticed lot of professors like discussion based classes.

Overall Experience: Being in Lubin presents a lot of opportunities. Big name employers come to the Career Fair and they alumni network is full of successful people who want to help you. Career Services is a huge help.

Campus Housing: I've lived in the older buildings and I've lived in the newer buildings. I can say that I was really satisfied with both.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know too much about Greek Life itself, but I know they do a lot of stuff on campus in addition to throwing parties. The Greeks are usually really cool towards everyone else on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The spirit on campus surrounding varsity sports is great. The football team is getting better, though they don't win too many games, the stands are still packed. The basketball games and volleyball matches are the most fun. Men's lacrosse is a great team and women's lacrosse is in their second year, so there's a lot of excitement surrounding them. The gym is open to everyone and it's always very clean in there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The campus is undergoing a lot of great changes. The new dorm buildings are awesome and it definitely makes living there worthwhile. The cost of attendance is daunting, but you don't really get better than the facilities or professors than the ones they have at Pace.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes are okay, hard to get into but if you can get the one you want with the professor you want you're set.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Its really expensive but for a 24 hour gym and security and being so close to the school its pretty much worth the cost.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They're not the typical Greek but they're are a few that are.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: There isn't much of sports or athletics since we are a city school, they could really be improved and there is definitely a demand for improvement too.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really like it so far, the academics are great and the professors seem to have a lot of work experience that they bring into the classroom and help you learn more about the topic.

2 College Junior

Athletics: The New York City campus does not have sports; the sports are more important at the other campus, in Pleasantville, New York.

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.
