A great institution.

Sheneil

Over all i think the school is pretty okay. There are a few kinks they need to iron out like their Office of Student Assistance (OSA). I feel like OSA is not much help to students attending the school. Also I wish they would have a wider variety of food. The staff is pretty okay but there are some teachers that should be re evaluated for work.

Sabrina

I love the environment of the school, even with us being in the city they always want us to feel safe and that is obviously a top priority to them. Also its NYC how could someone not love it. The professors truly want there students to succeed and make sure there are internships available for all. They want every student leaving being successful in there field. The school respects everyone , no matter how someone might identify themselves, there is a huge community of love and respect with the university life.

Sarah

Pace is an incredible institution for the arts and creative community. In the heart of downtown Manhattan, Pace provides the location combined with top notch professors for anyone pursuing performing arts. My time there was informative, exciting, and overall high quality. The academics can be hit or miss depending on your professor, but I think this is true of any institution for higher education. For people pursuing academic degrees, the location is more desirable than the classes. There is very little challenge for academics, but there's incomparable education for the arts.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The worst thing about Pace is that the two campuses, New York and Pleasantville, are so far away from each other. While the location of the NY campus is better, the Pleasantville campus has the sports teams and I believe the sport aspect, being a fan and such, is something the NY campus doesn't provide.

  8. What are the academics like at your school?

    Pace has amazing professors who know other professionals in their field. Whn you combine that with our small classrooms, you really get to know all the professors on an individual basis, which is great networking when you want an internship or need a job. My freshman year, my counselor signed me up for an intro Latin American Studies class. I had two professors in this class who taught together, both of which I came to know very well. From there, my professor wrote me a reccommendation for a scholarship (which I recieved) and later for his next class (LAS 201) he set me up with an internship at The Consulate of Venezuela through a friend of his which was the Consul General. This shows how amazing our professors are and how truly dedicated and involved they are in their students' lives. Pace is definitley geared toward getting the students careers after graduation,

  11. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    Pace is an extremely unique school, most students work at least one job or internship, and find a way to be active on campus. Although everyone is pretty busy preparing for their future, most students learn quickly how to manage their time efficiently and their grades do not drop. We obviously do not have sports, but we all show our Pace Pride by showing up to all the theatre performances to cheer on our friends, or hanging out at our concerts (Kanye West, Gym Class Heroes, Ataris, to name a few) or Inside the Actors Studio with our friends.

  14. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    The one thing I love about Pace is that there aren't many stereotypes within the student body. It is a very small, unique campus derived with students from so many diverse cultures. The only stereotypes I've stood witness to within my three years at Pace are within Greek Life. Each sorority and fraternity has their own "cliche" which has remained the same year after year.

  15. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    Pace University does not have a very diverse ethinic group. The majority of the students are caucassian students, from rural towns and upbringing. Sometimes I feel displaced and out of sync with the students. Another issue that fustrates me is that students don't raise their hands enough in the class room. They appear to be dedicated to studying, yet no one in this school has enough life experience, or diversity, which makes the classes dull. The maturity level in the undergrad program is not completley there.

  18. Why did you decide to go to this school?

    I was instantly comfortable at Pace and it reminded me a lot of my home town because of the wild life on campus. It was an hour away so far enough to get away from everything and close enough that in the event of an emergency my family wasn't too far away. I liked that all of the people I met were nice and easy to talk to. I also appreciated the prestige of the school and how it would look on a job resume.

  19. Describe the dorms.

    The dorms are not the best, but I've seen worse. Maria's Towers is where most freshmen live, its right above the classrooms and its small with shared bathrooms, the only upside is you meet a lot of people quickly. There is also the option of John St., about a five minute walk from school and Clark and Henry St dorms in brooklyn, which are a short commute of ten minutes and newly updated. Fulton St dorms are the nicest and are the closest to school, but usually taken by seniors and juniors. By junior year most students get apartments because it is less of a hassle than dealing with Pace housing.

    Read all  7 answers
  20. Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

    No, many Pace students have apartments in the same neighborhoods as the University and the dorms, but are still considered commuters because they do not live in Pace provided housing. Also, many students chose Pace over NYU because Pace provides better internship opportunites and a smaller classroom atmosphere.
