Through the convergence of strong academics, experiential learning, and dedicated advising, we empower our students and positively impact our communities. We develop and launch programs that are relevant, focused, and forward-looking to meet the needs of the workforce of the future. We harness the world-class energy and talent of New York City and Westchester County and leverage the unparalleled access to internship and job opportunities. We champion diversity, equity, and inclusion and celebrate the innate potential of learners of all ages to achieve success. OUR PEOPLE At Pace, we are go-getters, strivers, doers, and achievers. Currently, the University enrolls more than 13,000 diverse individuals, including first-generation, international, and non-traditional students. Pace combines the benefits and resources of a large university with the personalized attention and focus associated with a small college. Dedicated full-time and adjunct faculty members balance academic preparation with professional experience, bringing a unique dynamic to the classroom. They are practitioners, consultants, advisors, and mentors to our students. OUR PATH Our signature program, the Pace Path, empowers students to succeed in their fields by combining powerful academics, dedicated mentoring, and immersive experiences including, research, clinicals, civic engagement, study abroad, and internships. Pace University has one of the largest internship programs of any college in the New York metropolitan area. Last year, Pace students engaged in more than 8,000 internships, co-ops, field experiences, and clinicals with more than 1,000 different employers. That’s why within one year of graduation, Pace students are employed at a rate almost 20% ahead of the national average. OUR HISTORY AND OUR FUTURE Founded as a one-room accounting school in 1906, Pace now offers a diverse selection of learning and living experiences. There are bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in more than 150 majors and programs, and Pace’s six schools and colleges—the College of Health Professions, Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Elisabeth Haub School of Law, Lubin School of Business, School of Education, and Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems—offer a variety of courses in business, health care, computer science, humanities, education, science, law, the arts, and more. More than 50 cutting-edge centers, institutes, labs, and clinics serve as the training grounds for future leaders. These include the NYC Design Factory, Entrepreneurship Lab, Environmental Policy Clinic, Cybersecurity Education and Research Lab, Immigration Justice Clinic, Health Care Simulation Labs, and the Center for Community Action and Research. Each program and experience is enhanced by our metropolitan New York location. The New York City Campus in Lower Manhattan (recently renovated with ultramodern facilities, collaborative learning spaces, and residence halls) is within walking distance to Wall Street, South Street Seaport, and the Brooklyn Bridge, and a subway ride from all that the city has to offer. The bucolic 200-acre Pleasantville Campus in Westchester County, only an hour by train from New York City, is home to 14 NCAA Division II teams, and the Elisabeth Haub School of Law is situated in the heart of White Plains’ buzzing suburban sprawl. *Source: PayScale

How expensive it is for what you get in return
Currently, I am still attending Pace, but my favorite thing is the resources I have access to at any given time.
I didn’t like the lack of professionalism, and or communication among peers and students when it came to very important situations that affected us all.
As an AEM student, I really like the location of Pace. Pace faculty is also really good at providing connections or giving advice to students on how to advance connections of their own. Social life is pretty good, especially considering the school is large enough to not remind you of high school, but also small enough to allow you to create genuine connections with other students.
The one I don't like about Pace is how expensive it is! They definitely need to work on how to be consistent with helping students with finances, or at least having departments responsible for student accounts to properly communicate those things to students.
Pace University is a very interesting place filled with an abundance of opportunities. I love my professors who are extremely supportive and encouraging. I also love working there as a student in the lab, it gives me such a great chance to network and build experience. I work on my research with such a great and helpful professor and I can honestly say that I have met people from so many different backgrounds.
Sometimes Pace can be a very intimidating place especially if you are a commuter. The pace is filled with great students sometimes it's hard to keep up with everyone else's achievements. You also sometimes feel that there is so much going on on the campus that you are unsure what to do.
Attending Pace Commercial Dance helped me integrate into the NYC community through the opportunity to work with established choreographers and educators in my field. I established mentoring relationships that continue to this day and collected a group of peers who continue to support me on my artistic and educational journey.
I think this may be the same with any university program, but there were some courses that were required for graduation that seemed completely irrelevant. Particularly as a transfer student, there are several credits I was told that I needed that I am still convinced were not necessary and my time could have been spent elsewhere.
Everyone has a uniqueness about them that will definitely get them far in their potential careers.
