Mediocre school, at best for top tier price. Do not even consider going here if you aren't Performing Arts and even if you are, consider carefully. The university itself sucks majorly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that pace is a great school. The accessibility the students have to their professors and facilities is something I admire greatly about the school. Also, having the connections with programs and internships is something I feel is something that the students are lucky to have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pace University is a perfect depiction of Manhattan; it opens the door to so many opportunities. Pace has helped me become more open-minded and ambitious. It has also encouraged me to experience new things. I have only been attending for one year and I already met great professors and friends. Hopefully, this trend will continue throughout further semesters.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

I love it!!! Choosing a college was a difficult decision, but now I can say with full confidence that I have made the right choice. There is no better place to get your education than in New York City. I am extremely grateful for all of the opportunities Pace offers me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Currently a rising sophomore. I have only had one year and I can only speak from my limited experience. Overall okay school. I will give my depth review of the good parts and the bad parts. Ill start with the bad so I can end on a good note. The BAD: -FINANCIAL AID SUPPORT OVER BREAKS: Over summer break, the time when loan requests and things of that nature need to be dealt with in a timely manner, financial aid office and support is nowhere to be found. Last summer I needed a little help to go through the financial aid process as I just finished high school and had never done this before. I had tried to email the financial aid office but they took over 2weeks to respond to me and rarely helped me. This summer I thought things would be easier because I had done it last year so I knew (somewhat) what I was doing. I am planning on studying abroad next year and so that complicated things a little bit but I still was able to figure it out on my own and I had everything submitted well before all the deadlines. Well it turns out they again dont like to respond to emails(I emailed them if they could sign a form I needed for study abroad, it has been 3 weeks now and no reply) and luckily enough I have been in contact with the non-pace study abroad facilitator and was able to finish everything without the help of the financial aid office. It was a simple form where all they had to do was sign that I had accepted my scholarship offer and write the disbursement date. I filled out the entire rest of the form. and submitted all the documents that they could need, eventhough they should have them in their own files. This year they also happened to lose my Parent PLUS loan request form. I mailed it through email in PDF form and through snail mail June 11th. They waited until today(July 2nd, after the deadline) to tell me that they had never received my form. So in a panic, I just filled another one out with my mother. During the school year, don't email, go in person because even though there is a line you will be able to talk to a person who is actually helpful. -INTERDEPARTMENTAL COMMUNICATION: Departments don't communicate with each other. The only person you can rely on is yourself. If you need a class switched or if you need to do anything that involves more than one person you need to be the one to cc them in an email, go to their office in person, and essentially explain what you need 10 times before anything will get done. I have also had the joy of hearing one department trash talk another. I went in to get advisement about a few things related to the courses I wish to take and how it would best fit on the track I am on and the 40-minute meeting was about 35minutes of this one department trash talking another saying I was advised and told incorrectly and how it always happens with said department and how it needs to change. -STUDENT SUPPORT: Not completely the university's fault but it is worth mentioning. It is a large school, nobody will really look out for you or check in with you or really care unless you actively go for it. Talking to a professor/advisor once or twice is not enough for them to remember you. You need to go a lot for them to actually remember who you are and what you need. -STUDY ABROAD: Ok so I am studying abroad for the next two semesters in two different countries. I value studying abroad highly so I put up with all the, excuse my language, bullshit, that has happened. Study abroad is the department that has a reputation for being awful. I have no idea how it happened because the people I have spoken to have been wonderful but nothing gets done unless you send 15 emails and push for things to go through by going to the office 2times a week for a month straight(literally happened to me, and was still screwed over.) I submitted forms a little over a month in advance and was told they would be uploaded and dealt with asap. A full school week goes by so I decided to email, nothing. I go in person and get told the forms are on the desk and will be dealt with that day, nope. Its a continuous cycle of nice to my face but don't do anything until THREE DAYS BEFORE THE DEADLINE and then there was a system mess up. SO I MISSED THE DEADLINE to apply, got an extension thank god and applied about a week later, but by that point, I lost out on applying to 4 scholarships that could've paid for the entire trip. I am only still studying abroad because I am lucky enough to have a good credit score to take out loans and I work hard at my jobs to pay for the things I need. The GOOD: -DORMS: Dorms are extremely expensive but they are great! I lived in 182 Broadway dorm and I have friends in Marias Tower, John St. and Beekman dorms. All the rooms(I have seen) are nice with an amazing view. High price, but the views are completely worth it. I have never seen a cockroach in the Broadway dorm or Beekman dorm(but I haven't heard good things about MT). MT even though it's not the most luxurious dorm has such a strong sense of community. You will become friends with everyone on the floor and you will always find people hanging out in the lounges. There is always something to do. -FACULTY&STAFF: In a university, probably one of the most important parts are the faculty and staff. All the people, as busy as they may be, are amazing! All the teachers I have talked to through office hours have been so amazing and are open to having wonderful relationships with students. My economics professor is funny to talk to and if something in the lecture is unclear he always has office hours and will come in on other days to help explain more and he really invests time in students. I feel like he really bends over backward to help students learn or give advice on courses. He is from Dyson(College of Arts and Sciences) and he gave me better advice than my department(Lubin-School of Business). He also connected me with a few people from Dyson who tremendously helped me with the mess of study abroad and helped me get course equivalencies and gave me recommendations. I also went to a panel discussion Microaggressions and talked to one of the panelists afterward. She is a wonderful person and we decided to chat later about life. This is one time she got too busy and forgot to follow up with me like she said she would but I ran into her again and we had a wonderful friendship after that. She is part of the LGBTQ+ office and her office became my place to relax and destress or cry if I needed to (college is sometimes stressful) and she felt like a sister-friend-mentor combination. SHe also invited me to be on the comittee for a Womens Empowerment conference which was an amazing experience. This committee connected me to a few other faculty and staff on campus in financial aid, the office of student success, and student development. It feels like I now have a few friends that if I need something I can go to in many areas of the campus. The people are truly amazing. -ACADEMIA: I am one who likes a class to be challening but fun. If I am paying so much money I need loans, it better be good academics. And it is. While I will say a lot of the fellow students are duds, that is to be expected. It is freshman year, some are more mature than others and some are more ready for the challenge and change that college brings. Pace isnt the hardest school but you can definitelty get your moneys worth if you try. If you apply yourself you can learn alot. Its all there for the taking but it truly depends on how much you try. I took the same class with my frined and out knowledge outcome was completely different. I put in effort and went to office hours. I was drawing parallels to things in class to the real world and was asking questions. My friend studied from my notes and didnt try to go deeper into the knowledge. Pace is a large university with pros and cons. You can make it anywhere if you have enough determination. Pace- you will need a lot of determination if you want to get the benefits you see Pace rave about in all their advertisements. If not, you can get by with mediocre grades and probably do fine. Like any university its only as great as the work you put in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

PACE University is diverse, fun and full of opportunity! They have their own "PACE path" to help guide their students for their future careers, making it easier for the new graduates to get jobs upon graduation. Lastly, the PACE family is extremely welcoming and open-minded; everyone will find a place for themselves and feel accepted no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school isn't horrible. But it could be better. The dorms need some love and attention. And the cafeteria needs better food. The students pay way too much money to get food poisoning. And the performing arts department needs to be its own school. They bring too much damn money in. It's not a bad school. I'm a proud Pace student and I will represent for my Setters (our mascot). But we need to step it up.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My Pace University experience so far has been "all right". If I went back in time during the time I was choosing between colleges I would not have been as enthusiastic of Pace as I was. There can be a lot of improvements done to the university and the financial aid department could use new and nice staff members.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Pace is a very nice school. At times though may find a few professors who may not try hard enough or make proper time with you and sometimes if you aren’t a student who is not shy you may feel like an outcase but despite that you may find nice professors around and nice people as it is a very cultural school with many different cultures.
