4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Its great if you can afford it. There are apartments everywhere, but as a college student, totally overpriced unless you want 7 roomates in one small apartment

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This is where a majority of the students eat anyways. Its New York, if you cant find food here, well I dont know what planet you come from.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Anything illegal is not accepted obviously. Quiet times are taken seriously by the RA's

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no party scene in the dorms, it is all in the city, in clubs.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Since the campus is in New York, you can walk out and get anything you want. But flex dollars are not accepted everywhere. But the places that they are accepted are great. These places include chipotle, red mango, long island bagel cafe, and au bon pain. Its great

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The New York City dorms are great because of their location. You can take a subway ride anywhere. The size is small, but that is expected of a dorm.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are really easy. Walking around campus and hearing the conversations make you feel like you were in a less educated version of your high school. It's mainly theatre majors or business majors. The classes are small so that's a plus. Attendance is usually taken and professors are strict about it. The grading policies for teachers are skewed and never to your advantage. They have a very limited amount of classes offered. Would recommend looking at all of the classes in your major offered before considering this school. The major courses are very streamlined and don't offer variety.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Pace doesn't have a prestigious reputation but they will help you get a good job with their connections.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Not really existent or present at the school. I didn't even know we had any.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: There is no sports at this school. No one cares, they're all into theatre.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living off campus can be less or more expensive depending on where you choose to live. You can look for places in Brooklyn that will cost a lot less than the dorms but you also have to factor in time and cost of transportation to get to school.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Office of Student Assistance always has long lines, but other than that I've had no problems.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They are very strict on campus. You have to have a Pace ID in order to get into any of the buildings. If you have guests you have to sign them in through the school. They are very picky about random things.

If you live in the dorms, having visitors (even from other dorm buildings) is a hassle.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They gave a good amount of scholarship and it was easy to get.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no party scene at this school. No one hosts or attends parties specific to this school. You either have to venture out to a club or bar, or you have to go to other schools parties.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I can't stand eating the food everyday. It all seems to be left out all day and very unhealthy. They are starting to add more salad options but they pretty much just moved the salad bar and but it behind a counter with a guy to do it for you. The cafe is very small with very limited food options. The staff is very rude to you and will take their time. I pretty much buy all my food and cook for myself because the meal plan is overpriced and you could get MUCH BETTER food for the SAME COST ELSEWHERE. The meal plan is simply a waste of money. #welcometopace

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live at the John Street residence. It's pretty good as far as aesthetics go, you have modern rooms (look at loot better than the wood furniture dorm rooms) and have private bathrooms. The social aspect of it lacks, because everyone tends to do their own thing and doesn't really want to get to know anyone else in the building.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The main campus is located in the financial district so most food places close after a while.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It's New York, you walk everywhere or take the subway. But the subway adds up after a while so its better to pay the $112 for a monthly unlimited ride subway pass.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid at Pace University is a nightmare! Especially if you're a transfer student. They didn't process my financial aid until the day of my orientation and I had to go in and ask about it. Nobody in the offices know what they're doing. If you're not on them 24/7 they will screw up your financial aid process. I'm still dealing with them know. They might be the reason I transfer out of Pace.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The computer labs are always open but only if you live in Maria's Tower.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food's pretty good. You can get things ordered to your liking and there's lots of options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Honestly the school itself is pretty great but the cost of tuition and dealing with their financial aid offices is too much. It's not worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: To fully understand Greek life on campus, you have to be a part of it. I am a sister of Sigma Delta Tau and my sisters are my life lines. When you pledge a sorority or a fraternity on campus, just know that the people in your greek org do have your back. If you choose to not be a part of greek life, thats fine. There is no pressure. But if you are interested even a bit... just come out to recruitment. It may change your life.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: Does Pace even have sports..? Because they just shouldn't.

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.
